Are you ready for winter?

heat-lossThose of you who have lived in the Flower Mound or Lewisville areas for a while are aware that winter can sneak up on you. It seems as if one week you are constantly using your air conditioner to keep your home cool in the summertime and before you know it, you must make the switch to keeping your home warm because the winter months arrive. When is time to make this switch, you want to ensure that your heating system is up and running but you also want to make sure that your home is fully capable of keeping you and your family comfortable without costing you an arm and a leg in the process.

The first thing that needs to be considered is if your heating system is going to run. Most people don't really give much thought to the heating system in the home until it is time to switch it on when the weather turns colder. Unfortunately, many people are in for a rude surprise, because their system is not going to operate as it did in the previous year. It is important for you to have your heating system checked in advance so that there are not going to be any difficulties which would keep you and your family uncomfortable during the time that the switch needs to take place. The professionals at Select Air can do on a routine check on your system along with a maintenance plan.

Another thing to consider is that your home is fully able to retain the heat that you are using with your heating system. This is something that needs to be considered because the cost of heating the home is continually going up and it is expected to go up again this year. Of course, you would want to ensure that your heating system was efficient and was properly suited for your home but you would also want to give some consideration to the insulation that is in your home as well. This can help to reduce the exchange of energy from the inside to the outside and it is something that can often be done quickly to ensure that your home is ready for the colder months.

Attic insulation

Why is attic insulation important?

Attic insulation installationAs a homeowner, you likely have an interest in making sure that your family is as comfortable as possible. You also want to make sure that you're not spending any more money than is necessary on energy costs. One of the ways for you to benefit in both of these matters is to ensure that you have adequate attic insulation. This is something that is often an issue in Texas, as inadequate amounts of insulation or perhaps even no insulation may be included during the construction of many homes. Why is insulation an important feature to include in the home?

Have you ever spent any amount of time in the attic during the summer months? It can be dangerously hot and as a matter of fact, people sometimes lose their lives because of the heat that is in the attic. The heat does it remain confined to the area, however, it can also come down into the home by radiating through the ceiling. This will cause you to spend more on energy costs when you are trying to cool your home in the summer months. In a similar manner, it can end up costing you money during the winter months because the heat is going to radiate through the ceiling from the living area into the attic. Without the proper insulation, you are losing money.

What type of attic insulation is necessary?

The attic insulation that is used by Select Air, who is your Flower Mound air-conditioning repair and heating service, is blown fiberglass insulation. We use this type of insulation because it is the best choice for keeping your home at a comfortable temperature. The air gets trapped between the insulation fibers, providing a barrier which results in less transfer of energy from the inside to the outside.

Another benefit to having insulation that should be considered is the fact that it can help to reduce the noise that is sometimes experienced from the outside. Fiberglass blown insulation also provides this effective barrier and it is something that should be considered. Yet another consideration is the fact that attic insulation can help to even out the temperature inside of the home. If you have ever noticed that some of the rooms in the home are different temperatures, these problem rooms can be adjusted through the use of attic insulation. It helps to make everyone comfortable in the home, regardless of where they happen to be.
