How many times have you heard the expression, “It’s not so much the heat, it’s the humidity.” I’ve heard that statement made many times since I was a kid, as Wisconsin summers can be warm and beautiful, but also very humid.
Higher temperatures, mixed with increased humidity, make it feel so much warmer. A way to combat higher humidity within your home is to turn on the air conditioning. Using the AC is wonderful, as it removes humidity and cools the home. But just like in winter, if your home isn’t operating well as a system, problems can occur.
There needs to be proper air flow within the attic, the home needs to be a well-insulated, and the windows, doors, siding, and roof all need to work together to function properly. Homes are built better than they were years ago, plus exterior products are superior to what they were decades ago. Fostering an appropriate indoor air environment is possible, enhancing a homeowner’s comfort.
If you were thinking your home needed new windows and doors during the drafty, cold Wisconsin winter, the need to update your home is as important in summer. The cooler air produced by your AC is escaping, causing the unit to run more and work harder, plus energy costs have increased, resulting in higher bills to cool your home.
Installing energy-efficient windows, doors, and patio doors will help you feel better in your home, plus it will look and function better, you will save on energy costs, and your home value will increase.
At this writing, we are in the middle of the warmest stretch this year and I love it! It sure is nice to rest in a nice cool home after spending time out in the sun and higher temperatures. Being in a cool home also improves your sleep, as experts say our bodies need cooler temperatures to achieve a good, deep sleep.
