How to Prepare Your Home for the Summer Season

Winterizing your home is very important and so is making it summer-proof. With temperatures expected to rise in the months leading up to this time of the year, you should want your home to be as cool as possible. It can be challenging, however, especially considering the increase in energy usage and the subsequent monthly bills in the summer.

Handyman Connection® of Grapevine, a leading expert in home improvement and maintenance in the area, shares some of the ways you can prepare your home for the summer season.

Adding Insulation

Increasing insulation inside the home during the summer months may seem illogical, but it can be beneficial. Insulating your walls, ceiling and floors makes it less likely for conditioned air to leak out of your home.

Replacing Your Windows

The period before the summer season is the best time to pursue window replacement. Consider energy-efficient windows with features that can help keep out harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared rays from the sun. For this, choose window units with low-emissivity (low-E) glass. You can select window frames that can withstand the summer heat, including fiberglass, aluminum and composite.

Dealing With Moisture Problems

Summer is also a time for you to deal with moisture problems. The dryness of the season allows you to determine the source of moisture appearing on your crawlspace or basement. You can inspect drain pipes, the ground sloping towards your home and the foundation walls for issues.

Painting Your Roof White

This project is one of the best energy-saving ideas you can do. After all, light colors don’t absorb sunlight and the accompanying heat – they reflect them. Doing so keeps your home’s attic and interior cool, reducing your cooling requirements that translate into better energy savings.
