How to Know When it’s Time for New Insulation for Your Ithaca, NY Home?

There are so many reasons we choose to call Ithaca, NY our home – and it’s not just because it’s “Gorges”. Though, you cannot question the natural beautiful this area has to offer, one thing does weigh heavily on some people’s minds – the weather.

Winters can be harsh and summers can be hot and humid here. That’s why it’s important to be able to find respite from the season ups and downs in your home. Homeowners in this area know that energy costs are high – especially if they own an older home. Older homes have often been inadequately insulated, and sometimes, critical areas have not even been insulated at all. Not to mention, older homes often have drafty areas that are not as present in today’s modern, tighter builds. That’s why having the right kind of insulation is important for your Ithaca, NY home.

In particular areas of your home you may also experience unpleasantly cold drafts during colder weather or hot spots during the warmer months. Another sign indicating energy loss is Ice build-up or large icicles along the edge of your roof.
