Common Summer Insulation-Related Issues
Did you know that insulation can have a major impact on your home during the summertime? In fact, oftentimes a lot of the issues that homes experience during the summer can be attributed to a certain extent to your home’s insulation (or lack thereof). Here are some common insulation-related issues and what you can do in order to address and fix them: Insulation Companies Bloomington MN
Your House Feels Hot & Uncomfortable
One common insulation problem that many homeowners tend to experience in summer is certain areas or rooms in their home feeling excessively hot and uncomfortable. While it’s normal for the interior of your home to experience some rise in temperature during summer, especially on particularly hot days. However, it’s not normal for your home to feel excessively hot, or for certain rooms or areas of your home to feel uncomfortably hot while the rest of your home seems to be fine. When this happens, it’s usually due to lack of attic insulation or having old/ineffective insulation material. If your home seems to be susceptible to temperature changes beyond what seems normal, then you should have your local insulation contractors in Bloomington MN at Century Insulation do an energy audit of your home and install new insulation in your home if necessary.
Your House Feels Humid & Stuffy
Another common issue that many homes that are poorly insulated experience is high indoor humidity levels and stuffiness. Insulation doesn’t just help to prevent the transfer of heat between the interior and exterior of your home, but it also helps to keep humidity and other undesirable things, such as allergens and so on, to creep into your home, making your home feel stuffy and sticky. Since summers in Minnesota tend to be extremely humid, it’s even more important to make sure your insulation is up-to-date and that areas such as your attic and basement are properly insulated in order to prevent humidity and heat from accumulating in your home in summer.
Your House Has Moisture or Mold Issues
Lastly, insulation is also responsible for helping to prevent the formation of moisture/condensation and the growth of mold and mildew in your home as well. Insulation is moisture/water-repellent and mold-resistant, which helps to prevent moisture, water, and mold/mildew issues from occurring in areas of your home that are susceptible to such. However, if your home is lacking insulation, or your insulation is old or damaged, then moisture and mold-related issues can occur in summer due to the high humidity levels and prevalence of heavy precipitation and flooding in Minnesota.
