4 Things To Keep In Mind As You Check Your Insulation For Winter

Although the temperatures are still relatively warm, winter is coming to the DFW area. And once your home has insulation installed once, you’re covered for a lifetime, right? Wrong. Certain types of insulation can actually deteriorate over time, which means it needs regular maintenance. Surveys show that two out of every three homes in the U.S. have poor insulation. Don’t get stuck in the dead of winter with insufficient insulation. Instead, make sure you’ve taken the proper steps to insulate your home. Here are a few reasons and steps to see that your home is ready for the coming winter months.

Don’t forget about doors and windows when insulating your home.

  1. Did you know insulating your home, beyond helping to keep it at a comfortable temperature, is also a money- and energy-saving resource? By keeping air of the desired temperature from seeping through holes in your home or out of your roof, your savings on your energy bill will be significant.
  2. Insulating your attic prevents damaging mold and mildew from entering your home through your roof. This is yet another reason why it’s so important to check that your home is properly insulated on the regular.
  3. Do a quick attic check! Can you see the joists of your attic floor? If so, you need to add more insulation to the floor of your attic to assure that your home is keeping warm air out of your home in the summer and inside your home in the winter.
  4. Don’t forget about your doors and windows! If either are letting out conditioned air, purchase and attach inexpensive weather stripping to begin honing in on those energy savings even before the winter months come. Sealing your windows and doors now will save you hassle during the wintertime and money off your electricity bill immediately.
