Prepare your home for hot summer weather

Let’s face it, it’s July – and things won’t be cooling down in the Hampton Roads area anytime soon! Learn how to be beat the heat, economically and efficiently with Atlantic Spray’s spray foam insulation.

Improving attic insulation, providing effective coverage for your windows, and controlling moisture in and around your house are all great ways to keep your home cool and comfortable this summer.

Making these three improvements allows you to maximize the output of your air conditioning while keeping your electric bills to a minimum. A vented attic can heat up to 130 degrees in the summer, causing your HVAC system to work much harder than necessary. Unwanted moisture can also form as the result of condensation. These problems can be solved when we apply spray foam insulation to the underside of the roof deck. As a result, the attic becomes a “conditioned” space that is as comfortable as any other room in your home.

And choosing spray insulation over traditional batt or fiberglass insulation will save you time, money, and energy. While the latter is only stapled or set into wall cavities, allowing air and moisture to pass through gaps – spray foam insulation adheres to walls and floors, creating a tight seal and barrier against air and moisture filtration.

Another sneaky source of overheating may be entering right through your windows. Awnings and solar screens maximize shade around your home.
