INSULATION CAN KEEP YOUR HOME COOL THIS SUMMER
In colder weather, insulation essentially prevents the loss of heat to the outside from your home. However, did you know that insulation actually stops hot air from entering your home during warmer weather? Heat naturally moves from warmer to colder places, therefore insulation stops the flow of heat. This is why adequate insulation in the floors, attics and walls is crucial to keeping a family comfortable when it is hot outdoors.
Not only will having the right insulation keep a home cool, it will also prevent air conditioning systems from working overtime when it is hot. Insulation will keep the temperature down and it also has the potential to lower your utility bills impacted by your air conditioning systems.
