Insulate Your Home for Summer: After All, It’s National Home Improvement Month!

May is National Home Improvement Month. So, why not include residential insulation in your Twin Cities home improvement plans? Spring is actually a great time of year to consider replacing and installing your home’s insulation. When some people think of residential insulation, they assume it’s only important when they need to keep their homes warm. But insulation also serves plenty of other purposes. It can help reduce the amount of outside noise you hear in your home, and it can also help keep your home cool in the summer. It can even help lower the cost of your utility bills. At Lewis Insulation, we are trusted residential insulation experts and can think of several reasons you should make sure your home’s insulation is ready to take on the summer months ahead.

Proper Ventilation

Ventilation is what helps get rid of the heat and humidity, drawing it out of your home. Proper residential insulation and ventilation play a key role in making sure this heat and humidity do not build up in your attic. And, insulation is what helps to keep the heat from the sun from entering your home in the first place.


Humidity can get trapped in your attic due to the fact that heat rises. In order to cool down the home, the humidity and heat need somewhere to go once they reach your attic. Otherwise, your entire house can get uncomfortably hot. And, when you try to counteract this heat and humidity, you might end up running your air conditioner much more than you would have otherwise, leading to higher cooling bills.
