Cellulose Insulation Keeps Your Home Cooler in Summer

It’s getting warmer and warmer and before we know it, summer will be here. Is your home’s insulation working to keep your home cool? If your air conditioning unit is doing all of the work, it’s time to consider better insulation. What happens when you crank up the AC and it’s still uncomfortably hot? Are there rooms in your house that you avoid during the summer? If so, then it’s very likely that you need to update your insulation.

Many people think insulation is only important during the colder seasons, but the need for proper home insulation applies to hotter summer months as well. Insufficient attic insulation allows the summer heat to permeate into homes. This is why it is very important to check attic insulation as the first step in troubleshooting a home that does not stay comfortably cool, or has extremely high electric bills during the summer months. Here at Lewis Insulation, we specialize in insulation installation including cellulose insulation for Wayzata and the surrounding areas. We can help get your insulation where it needs to be for the summer months ahead.

The most important place to start is the attic. When the summer sun beats down continually on your roof, hot and cold air tends to behave differently than it would in the colder, winter months. As we all know, attic insulation, helps to keep the home feeling comfortable. Cellulose insulation is one of the best options to use in the attic since it offers superior sealing properties compared to fiberglass batts or rolls. Blown-in cellulose insulation provides a thick layer of insulation that provides great comfort to your home. Cellulose insulation is also plant fiber-based; perfect for wall and roof cavities to insulate, draught-proof and reduce free noise. And, since it is made of recycled plant fibers, it is safe for the environment and your wallet. If you’ve been having concerns about your attic’s insulation, our highly trained specialists are just a call away.
