If you have any kind of temperature disparity from the lower to the upper floors in your home, you may be wondering if it’s an issue with your HVAC or your insulation. While having your HVAC system checked is always a good step, asking your insulation company about temperature disparities can also be a good option to make sure that your bases are covered.
One thing you’ll want to make sure to do when you call on your insulation company is ask the right questions about temperature changes and the difference in zones throughout your home. For example, you might want to know why your attic or upstairs bedrooms are so much warmer than the downstairs areas. Or, another good question might be why you seem to have temperature differences from one room to another on the same floor.
Often, the answer to these types of questions lies in your insulation materials but could be caused by different issues. For example, your upper floors could be hotter due to solar heat gain and your attic is lacking the proper radiant barrier to help cool your home. Alternatively, if your home has older or settled insulation in the walls, the temperature can easily fluctuate from one room to another.
Most importantly, it is a good idea to keep an eye on your utility bills to see whether you need to address an energy issue. Your insulation company can make recommendations for the steps to take to resolve temperature inconsistencies in your home.
