My Personal "Ah Ha!" Moment
Hot Upstairs During Summer in Your House Too?
This is my personal experience that made me committed to being the best energy auditor I can possibly be which includes finding ways to spread the word to people about what makes their home less comfortable and more costly.
I grew up in Laurel, Maryland - so I am not new to the area.
At the time, I was about six months into being a home energy auditor. I was learning a lot, especially out in the field working with people in their homes all day.
What I was realizing is that I am not alone. Lots of others are also hot upstairs in the summer.
I wanted to share because here is what a lot of people do and it does not solve their problem:
1. Replace HVAC System
Air sealed and insulated the attic and basement.
Now, the temperature throughout our townhouse is far more regulated. The upstairs is still a bit hotter during the hottest of days with full sun, but it cools down in the evenings and we can sleep.
We found it so much easier to heat the house on cold winter days too!
Anyways, I like to share that story with people I know because I see too many Maryland homeowners trying to solve comfort with new AC or new windows and the only way to do it is with proper home assessment & correctly installed insulation.
Hope you find a way to beat the Maryland summer heat and take hold of the winter cold!
