Spring has finally hit the Frankfort and Decatur area. You’re probably already in the midst of cleaning and organizing other projects around the house. While you surely remember to store away winter clothes and clean the barbecue, it’s less likely that you’ve thought about checking your home’s insulation.
At Assured, we know that there’s simply no home performance upgrade that can make as noticeable a difference as insulation. This is especially true of multifamily buildings, which can utilize a great deal of energy if not insulated properly. As many as 90% of homes throughout the United States suffer from a lack of insulation, and this includes multifamily homes.
With the chill of winter behind us at this point, homeowners in the Frankfurt and Decatur, IL area are beginning to look forward to the warmer weather ahead. The promise of being able to spend time outside in a t-shirt is reason enough for excitement, but so too is the chance to improve home performance before the heat of summer sets in.
If you’re like many Decatur or Frankfort, IL area residents struggling with chilly areas in your home, you may be looking forward to the end of winter. Warmer weather will often mean increased comfort, both inside and outside of your home. What many homeowners may not realize, however, is that if you struggled to heat your home over the past couple months, you may continue to experience lower levels of comfort as temperatures climb. In fact, it is common for abnormally cold homes to become abnormally warm when the seasons change.
Do you find yourself avoiding certain parts of your home every winter? No matter how powerful your heating system is, drafts (especially on windy days) can create an uncomfortable home. Drafty rooms are a common problem for many Decatur homeowners, but these leaks are often more than just a room-specific inconvenience. Drafty rooms can be a sign of deeper energy efficiency issues and can be a big impact on the comfort level of your entire home. Drafts indicate air leakage, meaning your heating system is working overtime to maintain a certain temperature in your home.
After winter many of us are looking forward to the arrival of spring. However, while spring can be a time of relief for most of us, the turn of the season can bring its own discomfort for many. If you are one of the many Decatur or Frankfort area residents that struggles with seasonal allergies, spring can be a very difficult time. Many people will find their symptoms intensified by the increased pollen, dander, mold, and spore production, and as a result will spend much of their spring indoors.
Did you know 40% of all home energy loss occurs through miniscule holes, often found in the attic? Insulating your attic will conserve existing energy, reduce temperature variations, lower heating and cooling bills, and more.
