Around Miami, we are taking down the Halloween decorations and switching them out for the decor used during Thanksgiving and the holidays to follow it. The difference is that many of us are doing it with the AC running rather than the heater. You shouldn’t stop at double-checking what is on your walls though–it is also important to keep a close eye on the condition of the stuff within your walls. We are of course discussing your home’s insulation.
Your insulation plays a big role in your home comfort. That is why we provide attic insulation services to the residents in and around Miami. The insulation in your attic can help keep your home cooler and keep the air indoors cleaner as well. If you aren’t sure what it means when your insulation isn’t up to par, we want to give you some information so you know when to reach out to us.
Why Insulation Is So Important to Your Home
The insulation in your home is stashed in your attic and walls where it seemingly doesn’t do anything. However, even though it may not have moving parts, insulation has a vital part to play in your home comfort. Whether blown-in or laid down in layers, your home’s insulation acts as a thermal barrier that helps to block to transfer of heat and moisture in and out of your home. What this means is that this material helps to keep cool, clean, dry air in your home where you want it and blocks hot, dirty, humid air from entering where it isn’t wanted.
How to Tell Your Insulation is in Trouble
Over time, insulation in your home will wear down. Moisture and harsh temperatures will take their toll on this material causing it to degrade and fall apart. If the insulation in your home is starting to wear out you will need to have a professional visit to repair the issue or replace your home’s insulation overall. Here is how to tell you need to reach out to a professional technician:
- Your home doesn’t stay cool as long as it used to.
