Protect Your Home from the Texas Heat

What’s better than staying cool in the heat? During the hottest days of summer, we like to stay in our homes and enjoy the air conditioning. The sun could be devastating to many things, including our skin, our gardens, and of course, our homes. During this summer, you need to keep an eye out for protecting two things: your home’s exterior paint job and your air conditioning unit.
After years of damage, the sun is going to dry up your exterior home paint job, but that is an easy fix. On the other hand, if your A/C unit breaks, that could cost you a large amount of money. Take these tips to prevent your A/C from overworking!
● Insulate your attic: Your attic needs to be properly insulated. This helps to keep the heat in during winter and keeps the heat out during the summer. Proper insulation also assists with saving money on your bill.
● Consider installing an attic door cover: Most of the heat that travels between the attic and the house is through the doorway. Proper insulation will help but an attic door cover will reduce the heat even more.
● Caulk your windows and doors: Caulking is beneficial in keeping the right temperature in your home. Poorly sealed windows allow for warm air to seep through. The same goes for doors. Make sure to weather strip them.
● Some other helpful tips with helping keep the warm air out include purchasing a programmable thermostat or a multi-stage air conditioner.
Liberty Builders can help with insulation. If your home is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider requesting this service. Keep your house cool and your energy bill down by calling us today for a free in-home consultation.
