In a matter of weeks the heat and high humidity will settle in for the summer months. While the heat can be overwhelming, there are a few steps you can take to keep your home cool and comfortable. Before the temperatures warm up, follow these steps to prepare your home to keep the hot air outside!
Schedule a Professional Roof Inspection
Throughout years of harsh weather conditions and wear and tear, your roof can become deteriorated. After some time, a weakened roof isn’t able to withstand additional weather conditions and high winds. Additionally, a broken down roof also generates air leaks, making it difficult to maintain a cool house during the summer. Reach out to a professional contractor to inspect your roof and apply any necessary repairs to the area.
Install New Insulation
Your attic also plays a key role in keeping the cool air in your home during the summer months. Worn down insulation isn’t able to prevent air leaks, which can make it difficult to maintain a comfortable and energy efficient environment. If you want optimal control of your home’s temperature, schedule a professional insulation installation service.
Repair Drafty Windows
Drafty, old windows make it difficult to maintain a consistent temperature inside the home. Older windows also can’t keep UV rays out of the house as efficiently as newer windows. In order to keep your home cool this summer, get your windows replaced with new and advanced windows.
Replace Faulty Siding
Similar to insulation, durable siding is also essential for keeping air leaks from occurring. Because worn down siding can cause your home to let in the summer heat, you’ll want to replace faulty siding to promote a more energy efficient home. By replacing your siding, you’ll not only create a more comfortable environment during the summer, but you’ll also enhance your home’s curb appeal.
