You may have noticed February weather in Tampa can be a bit unpredictable. While we’re not getting the harsh winter conditions affecting other parts of the country, our temperatures can change dramatically like they will between now and the end of the week when we move from lows in the 30s to highs in the 80s. If you’re noticing an unwelcome change to the comfort in your home, it may be time to consider an attic insulation upgrade.
Attic Insulation Prevents the Great Escape
On cool mornings like we just experienced on Sunday, you turned the heat on and stay warm. In some homes, the heat has to run longer just to get to your desired temperature or the heat seems to be on continuously. Several factors may be contributing to that issue, but aging insulation is one to address quickly. The heat loss due to aging insulation could be costing you money now and will do the same when it’s time to turn to A/C on again very soon.
Replace Aging Insulation Fast
The age of your home is one indicator of a potential insulation problem. Let’s say you moved into your Clearwater home in 2003. This year marks 10 years since then, and homes that age and older most likely have inadequate and ineffective insulation. Making the attic insulation upgrade a priority before winter’s end and getting blown-in insulation provided will help minimize how much the furnace or air conditioner has to run.
Even Newer Homes Need Help Sometimes
Tampa Bay homes built in the last few years aren’t necessarily properly insulated either, but how would you know if that’s a problem at your home? You could be spending more on heating and cooling costs throughout the year and not able to pinpoint the reason. Getting a reliable contractor on the job to provide a quality product, such as Owens Corning, can solve that mystery and provide immediate energy saving benefits.
