Beat the Heat with Attic Insulation Upgrades

During the summer, the number one goal of homeowners is to battle the heat. Typically, if all systems are going well, the AC provides an immense amount of relief, maintaining a cool and consistent temperature while keeping utility bills low.

Yet, lately, it feels like your air conditioner hasn’t been working to its potential despite you changing the air filter and cleaning the ducts and equipment. The problem may not be with the AC unit itself, but with the attic instead. Consider upgrading the insulation in your attic. It is one of the most direct ways to lower your monthly utility bills, as well as improve indoor comfort.

Take some time to enter your attic during the day and see how hot it can get in there. If your attic isn’t properly insulated, much of that hot, stagnant air transfers through the floor below and enters your living space. As a result, the air conditioning will have to work twice as hard to cool down the house, which puts wear and tear on the unit and increases monthly energy bills. You may even qualify for an energy rebate through your utility company.

When the attic is well-insulated  stops heat from passing through the ceiling to the living areas underneath. You may also consider installing an exhaust fan to lower the temperature of the attic. The Florida heat should not make your home unbearable this summer. The All Elements team can help cool down your attic, as well as the rest of your house. Give us a call today at 1-866-306-0359 for an estimate to add insulation today.
