Why Is Your House Hot In The Summer?

Why Is Your House Hot In The Summer?

Summer can be a great season, filled with outings and swimming in the pool, but what happens if your house seems hotter than it is outside? There are a few different issues to consider, but one of the biggest concerns might be in your attic insulation.

If your house seems hotter than normal, and you have the air conditioner running non-stop, check for any air leakages throughout the house. If you notice holes or improperly sealed windows and doors, escaping cool air might be the culprit. Also, check the condition of your air conditioner unit, as well as any heat coming off of other household appliances. Another likely cause for your hot house might be from improper insulation. If your attic insulation is damaged or was installed incorrectly, this will let in heat from the surrounding air around your home.
