Lansing, MI − Residents throughout Michigan are experiencing a record breaking heat wave as temperatures soar up through the high 90s and into the 100s. In these scorching temperatures, homeowners are searching for ways to keep their home cool and comfortable. To do this, it is essential to ensure that air conditioners are working properly and that the adequate amount of insulation is installed in the attic, walls, and throughout the entire house.
In addition, the installation of a reflective barrier in the attic will help keep the heat out. Air conditioning expenses can be cut by 10% or more with the installation of an attic radiant barrier, and they can reflect as much as 97% of the sun's heat back toward the outside. This will reduce a home's heat gain and lower air conditioning costs as well.
Dr. Energy Saver Lansing provides whole home energy audits to help identify the areas of a home that will reduce utility bills, save energy, and increase comfort. By adding insulation, heat flow is slowed down or stopped to reduce how hard a home's HVAC system has to work. When this happens, homeowners save energy and money which increases home comfort at the same time.
