Tips for Summer Insulation

While most people associate insulation with keeping a home warm in winter, during the summer, insulation is equally important to keep the house cool.

The Importance of Summer Insulation

As solar energy heats the roof, temperatures in an enclosed attic may exceed 130 degrees in summer. This broiling reservoir of heat energy continuously radiates downward through your ceiling and can raise temperatures in rooms below by more than 10 degrees. Infiltrating heat makes the home harder to keep comfortable, raises your monthly cooling costs and puts added wear and tear on your central air conditioner.

Insulation installed between joists in the attic floor is critical to prevent heat gain in living spaces during summer. Two insulation types—fiberglass and cellulose—are typically utilized in the attic. Standards for adequate insulation to achieve proper heat resistance have been increased in recent years. If you haven’t upgraded your insulation, it may no longer meet the recommended amount.
