Temperatures are Rising!
Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 by Joy Padgett
Summer in Kentucky means sweltering heat and intense sunlight. It’s like a sauna outside, but sometimes our own homes feel the same way!
Before temperatures reach unbearable, and your home is NOT somewhere you want to be, you should have a Home Comfort Evaluation completed by the Central Kentucky company who has qualified and highly trained technicians….Weatherization Plus!
We can show you ways to stay cool before the temperatures reach ridiculous levels by conducting a thorough analysis of your home. Even if your home is relatively new, it is probably still leaking air in places you may not even be aware of. Most houses leak air, sometimes as much as 30% of your energy costs are going right out the roof!
Your attic is one of the biggest culprits of wasted energy. What’s more, most of the gaps in your attic have been covered with insulation making them impossible to see!
What’s that you say? Doesn’t the insulation stop the air? No. It doesn’t. Unless you have had spray foam insulation installed, the most widely used types of insulation act as more of a filter, slowing down the transfer of air, but not stopping it. The best way to stop airflow is to seal the gaps with caulk before insulation is installed.
The specially trained Home Comfort Technicians at Weatherization Plus use industry-specific equipment to detect areas where air is leaking into and out of your house. They are trained to look for tell-tale signs of air leakage in a variety of areas inside your home…dust webs, linear dirt patterns in carpeted areas, and air washed insulation.
Once you have had a Home Evaluation completed on your home, we will put together a proposal to fix that uncomfortable home before the heat wave reaches Central Kentucky! We can fix everything at once, complete your project in phases or finance the work for you. We can easily provide services for Shelbyville, Danville, Harrodsburg, Lawrenceburg and Bardstown!
What are you waiting for! We can fix your uncomfortable home!
