Home insulation is essential when it comes to preventing heat loss and reducing energy costs during the winter, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s useless during the warm season. On the contrary, insulation is just as important in the summer as it is in the winter.
If you would like to find out what are some of the most important reasons why you should consider insulating your home for the summer, then you should keep on reading:
1. It prevents overheating
If the temperature in your house rises excessively every summer, you need better insulation to help moderate the temperature in your home. Overheating will not only cause discomfort, but it can also lead to more serious health-related issues.
Overheating is a common problem during the summer months, but, by properly insulating your home, you can make sure the temperature in your house stays at a comfortable level, even when the weather is hotter than usual.
As shown in this article, 2016 is set to be the hottest year on record, which means that getting high-quality insulation should have priority on your to-do list this year.
2. It prevents heat transfer and reduces energy costs
During the cold season, one of the biggest advantages of having home insulation is that it drastically reduces heating costs. But it can help you lower your bills and make your home more energy-efficient during the summer as well.
Remember that your cooling system will have to work hard to regulate the temperature inside your home when it’s hot outside.
Home insulation reduces the amount of heat getting in. As a result, it helps reduce loads on cooling systems. Sure, you could choose to just rely on your air conditioner to do all the heavy lifting and work around the clock, but that will just cause your energy bills to skyrocket.
SuperFOIL insulation is very efficient when it comes to preventing radiant heat transfer. While other forms of insulation, such as glass mineral wool and polystyrene, also slow down various forms of heat transfer, they have very low reflective (very high emissivity ratings) ratings.
This means they are not the best option. The best solution for reducing heat gain due to radiant heat, like that emitted by the sun, is foil insulation.
3. It helps solve the problem of hot attics
During a summer day, the temperature in your attic can reach very high temperatures. If your attic lacks proper insulation, a lot of that heat will radiate down into the ceiling of your house, and, as a result, the room temperature will also rise.
In properly-insulated homes, this is not a problem. Attic insulation acts like a barrier between the inside and outside temperatures, and therefore it effectively reduces heat gain.
