If you’ve been wanting to make your home in Midcoast or southern Maine more comfortable and efficient, you may be waiting until the fall when temperatures cool down. But did you know there are many benefits to getting your home performance improvement projects done earlier in the year — especially before the summer heat is in full swing? Here are some reasons you shouldn’t wait to improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
Make Your Home More Comfortable for Summer
Many homes here in Maine don’t have air conditioning; but that doesn’t mean they are naturally cool and comfortable all summer long. Most homes in the area have air leaks and are under-insulated, allowing outside heat to seep into the attic, bedrooms, and other areas of the home.
By scheduling an energy audit now, you can get to the bottom of inefficiencies that make your home uncomfortable in the summer. An experienced professional will diagnose home comfort issues and point you to effective solutions like air sealing and insulation.
Get Work Done at a Time That’s Convenient for You
Home performance upgrades don’t just make your home more comfortable in the summer; they also make your home cozy and comfortable throughout the fall, winter, and spring. Fall is an especially busy time for home performance upgrade companies, as the weather is cooling down and homeowners are looking to make their homes comfortable for the coming winter.
By scheduling your home comfort and efficiency upgrades in the summer, you’ll get ahead of the rush. You’ll be able to schedule your home upgrades at a time that’s the most convenient for you.
