Spring is almost here and its the perfect time to think about your homes energy efficiency. Now is the time to prepare for the hot humid weather of summer soon to come. Here are a few tips that will save money and keep you comfortable this summer.
Have your Air Conditioner checked, especially if it’s an older unit. When temperature and humidity start rising, air conditioners start working harder and need to be ready for the hot, humid weather of summer.
Seal up any cracks, gaps, places were you felt cold drafty air during the winter. This is where heat and humidity will be coming in this summer, causing you and your family to be uncomfortable and decrease your homes energy efficiency.
Check your attic insulation. During summertime the temperature in your attic can be extremely hot. Insufficient attic insulation, and air leakage will be a source of major discomfort. Plus can cause your air conditioner to work much harder, and your cooling costs to be higher than necessary. Proper attic insulation is one of the most cost effective improvements to increase your homes energy efficiency you can make.
