If you’re like many 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.

Why does this happen? We’re glad you asked.

Hard-to-Control Indoor Climates & Home Air Leaks

We’d all like our home’s comfort to be independent from the weather outside, but if your indoor spaces are not completely separated from the surrounding outdoor spaces, the weather can have a direct impact on the comfort level of your home. Nearly all homes have small cracks and gaps throughout, allowing outdoor and indoor air to exchange freely. These holes can allow either warm or chilly air into the house, causing a very uncomfortable and hard-to-control indoor climate.

As long as these leakage points are a part of your home, you will experience some level of discomfort in both winter and summer. Fortunately, there’s a solution. Assured Insulation Solutions installs high-performance insulation to help keep your home comfortable year-round.

Using High-Performance Insulation for Year-Round Comfort

Insulation can help stop air leakage throughout your home and can strengthen the boundary between the heated/cooled spaces of your home and the outdoor air. By working effectively to improve this boundary (or your home’s “building envelope”), properly-installed insulation can boost your home’s comfort throughout the year, keeping you comfortable as temperatures adjust this spring and summer.
