As we say goodbye to summer and begin enjoying fall (with festive feasting, Halloween candy, football, carving pumpkins, and so much more), we’re thinking ahead to the slow decline of Florida’s soaring summer temperatures. It’s certainly an odd transitional time to handle. How exactly can you prepare your home for the in-between stage of the seasons? While we wait for the cool days of winter down the line, read on for a few ideas of what tasks you might add to your around-the-house to-do list.
Swap Out Summery Bedding and Décor
Even if it’s hot and sunny outside, changing up your around-the-house surroundings can help you really embrace the fall! Make sure you’re maintaining indoor comfort with an efficient HVAC system and quality attic insulation. Then, it’s a no-brainer to switch out bedding and other fabrics around the home for a fall feel. Trade floral or tropical prints for something a little more autumnal. Think flannels, plaids, knits, and warm, earthy tones. These are perfect for snuggling up by candlelight for Halloween movie marathons!
Care For Your HVAC System
In order to maintain the right indoor temperature and air quality to enjoy the seasonal transition, you’ll need an HVAC system that is both operating correctly and efficiently. Make sure to regularly change the filters – and the changing seasons marks a great time and reminder to get your unit maintenanced. But despite your best efforts, sometimes, this isn’t enough. Your home itself might be causing your unit to run inefficiently, costing you more money on energy bills! So, how can you solve this?
Avoid Drafts with Air Sealing
There’s a possibility that the conditioned air inside your home is escaping through cracks and crevices in your attic or other walls. This air leakage can be the culprit behind your home’s inability to heat or cool efficiently – causing your HVAC system to overwork itself to maintain your desired temperature. Attic Man can help you solve this problem with air sealing – using sealant to block off any of these cracks that might allow the escape of air from your home. This can improve both efficiency and air quality!
Improve Home Comfort with New Attic Insulation
Once you’ve gotten assistance with sealing off any air leaks from your home, adding new, high-quality attic insulation can help you solve any problems you’re facing with indoor comfort and temperatures. Insulation resists the transfer of heat into and out of your home – so, while the weather remains warm, you’ll enjoy cool temperatures inside your home that last. When temperatures fall towards winter, you can also be sure to remain warm and comfortable inside!
Unsure about your attic insulation options? Attic Man has the expertise to help you decide which option will work best for your project. This might mean cost-effective fiberglass batts, blow in insulation to accommodate unusual spaces, or spray foam insulation that can seal gaps and cracks in a cohesive step.
