If you’ve just purchased a home in metro Baton Rouge or New Orleans, congratulations!
Spring is a popular time for people to move because it’s timed right at when the kids are getting out of school, so you won’t have to deal with them transferring to a new school in the middle of the year.
And let’s face it, it’s also a more comfortable time to be packing, lugging boxes to and fro, and unpacking into your new home as the summer heat hasn’t yet hit.
When you first purchase a home, you might feel a little overwhelmed at all the new responsibilities you have, even if this isn’t your first home purchase.
After all, the home inspector always finds something that’s in need of repair, and you’ve probably got a “to do” list a mile long! That is, after you’ve finished unpacking all those boxes!
There may also be some changes that you want to make to your new property, whether for functional or aesthetic purposes.
We realize there’s a lot to take in, but when you live in Southeastern Louisiana, especially with summer on the horizon, there’s one thing that needs to be prioritized on your “to do” list: making sure your home is ready for south Louisiana heat!
When it comes to beating the hot and humid Southeastern Louisiana heat, your average home AC system can only do so much. After all, they’re really only designed to cool your home about 15 to 20 degrees below the exterior temperature.
And as anyone who’s lived in the deep south will tell you, on Southeastern Louisiana’s hottest and most humid days, that just won’t cut it!
Do You Know if Your New Home is Summer Ready?
Since AC systems can’t be the end all solution to our summer heat, it’s important that you have a properly insulated attic so that your home stays cool and comfortable during our hottest months. I bet you the home inspector didn’t mention your attic’s insulation state and whether or not it was summer ready during your home inspection, though, did he?
The best way you can determine if your home is ready for a Southeastern Louisiana summer is to calls us to do an energy audit. During this inspection, preferably performed before the heat hits, we’ll determine the insulation status of your home.
Doing so will help us determine just how much your attic’s current insulation status will cool down your new property, if you need additional insulation & further, what insulation solutions will be best for your home.
One of the hardest things for homeowners to do, especially when they are moving into a larger property, is to budget for their new, anticipated utilities. Our energy audit will help you do this, as well as let you know if investing in your home via attic insulation can help keep you cooler in the summer, while keeping your electricity bills down, too.
