Does insulating your home help during summer?

Often when you think about insulating your home, it’s because you want to keep your home warm in colder weather. However, insulating your home has a lot of benefits during warmer weather as well.

Benefits of insulating your home in summer:

1 Save on power bills!

Summer temperatures can soar in New Zealand with the sun beating down on your home your roof cavity can reach over 40 degrees!

Ceiling insulation can help block heat from entering helping to create a cooler home. Plus another benefit are lower energy bills as you don’t need to switch on your air conditioning as often.

2 Create a healthy home

With the sun powering through the roof, windows and walls it creates high humidity, not only making you feel uncomfortable but creating moisture which can lead to mildew, mould and condensation issues.

Apart from installing insulation in your home’s roof cavity, you can also insulate your underfloor and walls to help maintain an even household temperature and creating an air seal. All of which are important, both for the winter and the summer seasons.

So there you go, two important reasons why you need insulation during the summer:

  1. Prevent your home from overheating by trapping the cool air, especially in your ceiling.
  2. It’s also important in saving on power bills.

Whether it’s your walls, ceiling, or roof – insulation during summer is great in affording you comfort during the heat and saving you money on your monthly power bill.
