Summer is a time for relaxation and fun in the sun, but it’s also the time of year when many Southeastern, PA homeowners find it difficult to create a comfortable, cool indoor environment. Hearing the word “insulation” this time of year, though, will likely bring to mind icy images of the dead of winter.

Contrary to popular belief, insulation is actually just as important during the summer months as it is when the temperatures drop. It helps to keep cool, conditioned air from escaping your home on the hottest days of the year and reduces stress on your cooling system. Is home’s insulation up to par?

Why Insulation Matters in the Heat

There are plenty of reasons why homeowners associate insulation with the winter months. When combined with air sealing, it’s one of the most important lines of defense against the winter chill. Many people don’t realize, however, that the insulating power which keeps our homes warm during the winter works in the same way during the summer. 

Think of insulation as a barrier that separates your home from the outside environment. In this way, it helps to keep any conditioned air from escaping the home, whether it be warm or cool. A lack of air sealing and insulation can make your AC unit work harder than it’s supposed to in order to keep your home cool, leading to a lack of true home comfort while you end up paying a veritable fortune in energy costs.
