Summer temperatures in Trussville, AL, often soar close to the century mark, and this heat combines with high humidity to create a truly unbearable situation for local residents. Because summer arrives early in the local area, now is the time to prepare your home for the brutal summer temperatures ahead. By installing attic insulation, you can enjoy several exceptional benefits going forward.
1. A More Comfortable Home Environment
Temperatures in attics are often significantly higher than outdoor temperatures, and this intense heat will have an effect on your home’s interior temperature and overall environment. Isulation in your attic essentially serves as a blanket over your home’s interior. Quality insulation will moderate the temperature in the attic as well as inside the living spaces.
2. Reduced Wear on Your AC System
Your home’s AC system will endure extensive abuse through heavy use, starting in the spring season and extending through the fall months. With heavy use, AC repair issues related to excessive wear could be problematic. Because an insulated attic can moderate usage without negatively affecting your comfort level indoors, insulation can also reduce the frequency and severity of wear-related AC repair needs.
3. Attic Insulation Provides Savings on Energy Costs
As temperatures progressively warm up from early spring through August, you may notice your monthly energy costs creeping higher and even becoming unmanageable. Insulation in your attic enables you to stay comfortable indoors without relying on the AC system so heavily. The result can be significant savings on energy costs without sacrificing your comfort level.
