Whether we’re in the dead of winter or the blistering heat of summer most likely you’re the type of person who prefers to keep their home at a reasonably comfortable temperature. Well, you’re not alone. People want to be as comfortable as possible in their own homes no matter what the weather looks like outside. The best way you can go about accomplishing that feat is relatively simple. Proper insulation is a must-have if you live in an area with cold winters or hot summers. As we saw this past month or two in Louisiana, cold winters are not out of the question for the Shreveport and Bossier City metro area. If you have decade-old attic insulation or maybe none at all, save yourself some discomfort and put money back into your pocket by considering home insulation before your next local cold front or heat streak.
Attic Insulation Is Effective Year Round
What’s the best thing about a well-insulated home? The fact that you’re paying a fixed price for a better heated home in the winter and a more evenly cool one in the summer has got to take the top prize. Think about it. You could be paying more than twice as much to just fix an AC unit, not to mention if your heating goes on the fritz. There is no question that the attic or crawl space in a majority of homes is the most drafty. If you’re blasting heat or constantly running the AC to try and properly regulate your home environment then it’s almost certain that you’re losing out in the long run.
Year in and year out that bump to your monthly energy bill is going to eventually add up to some astounding out-of-pocket costs. An attic’s insulation can average around $1500-$3500 so it may seem like insulating your attic isn’t in your best interest for the short term but if you run the numbers over say 15 years, (the average life of an insulation service), you’ll find that you could be saving thousands of dollars.
Don’t Let The Winter Send Chills Through Your Home
You never really know what March and April are going to have in store concerning weather changes. The springtime can be especially sporadic. Don’t plan on turning your heater off just yet because if this year has taught us anything so far, it’s that the South can get just as cold as many mountainous or northern parts of the country. Winter for Shreveport is typically moderate, but that can always change like we’ve seen this February. If your home’s attic is like many across the country, proper sealing just doesn’t hold up as well and heavy storms or strong winds can do a number on how well your home is actually being protected from the outside environment.
