Having serviced over 15,000 homes in the metro Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas, we know a thing or two about the proper timing for insulating your attic in Southeastern Louisiana.
If you think the heat and humidity outside of your house is bad during the summer months, just take a quick trip up to your attic on those days…that is, if you dare!
Trust us, your attic is much, much hotter than it is outside on hot and humid summer days, making the job of insulating attics miserable.
In fact, some insulation contractors will even turn down proposed projects depending on their size, scope and the outside heat!
The Problem with Waiting…
Air conditioning systems can only cool down your home so much. In fact, some air conditioning experts will say that your AC is only designed to cool your home down about 15 to 20 degrees from the outside temperature.
On Southeastern Louisiana’s hottest summer days, that just won’t cut it!
Schedule Your Insulation Jobs for the Spring
Believe it or not, spring is the best time of year for you to schedule an insulation job. Not only is the weather warming up and the flowers blooming, but it’s cool enough in your attic for our workers to safely work up there.
After all, on metro Baton Rouge’s and New Orleans’ hottest summer days, not only can it be hard to work up in your attic, the working conditions might be downright dangerous to our contractors’ health, requiring frequent “cooling” and water breaks, and lengthening the amount of time it takes for us to get the job done.
In fact, summer insulation jobs take so much more time, that prices for attic insulation spike during the summer months to make up for the fewer amount of jobs attic insulators, like ourselves, are able to complete in a single day.
The Benefits of Attic Insulation in the Spring
Take advantage of the spring’s lower pre-season attic insulation rates. You will be happy to save on insulation costs, and you’ll definitely be in a better mood when it’s nice and cool in your home when a summer heatwave hits, while your neighbors are sweating and “glistening” inside their sweltering, hot homes!
Not only will having your attic insulation installed in the spring save you some money on the job and keep you nice and cool during the summer months, it’ll help bring down your electricity bills, too.
Southeastern Louisiana electricity bills spike to astronomical prices during the summer, as residents lacking proper attic insulation, blast their AC systems in an effort to beat the heat.
And while these metro Baton Rouge and New Orleans residents may get temporary temperature relief, their wallets are hurting! After all, the more you use your AC, the higher your electricity bill will be.
Reliable Insulation Contractors are Harder to Come by in the Summer
Not only does it take longer for them to complete jobs due to the hotter, harsher work conditions, but attic insulators are in huge demand during the summer months, as homeowners realize that their homes aren’t properly insulated.
And with increased demand come higher rates, which are easily passed on to homeowners who desperately want to cool down.
