Things are heating up across Texas, with residents of the greater Dallas, San Antonio and Austin areas preparing for the summer ahead. While thoughts wander to summer BBQs, get-togethers, and swimming pools, United Home Services offers a gentle reminder not to discount the importance of using this time to evaluate air ducts and home insulation.
Summer is a time for relaxation and fun, but also a season when many Texas homeowners find it difficult to stay cool and comfortable indoors. Although most Texas residents associate insulation with staying warm in winter, insulation is just as important for keeping hot air out of homes and maintaining a cool crisp interior.
Similarly, according to United Home Services, air duct inspection and maintenance can go a long way in optimizing energy consumption, reducing utility bills, improving airflow, and maintaining a comfortably cool home throughout summer.
As summer quickly approaches, United Home Services offers advice on the importance of air duct and home insulation services.
Home Insulation: a major contributor to a cool home in summer
In much the same way that insulation keeps warm air locked in homes and cold air out during the winter, in the summer it keeps cool air trapped inside while keeping the sweltering heat of the outdoors outside where it belongs.
Updating or upgrading home insulation can aid in reducing energy costs, stress on your HVAC or AC units, improve temperature control, and result in an overall more comfortable environment.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is estimated that homeowners can save 15% on average on both heating and cooling bills by adding insulation in crawl spaces, floors, attics and basements. This represents a significant portion of most homeowners’ utility bills on a month to month basis, and can really add up over time.
Benefits of Updating Home Insulation for Summer:
- 15% average reduction in utility costs
- Improved comfortability
- Better temperature control
- Reduced stress on HVAC and AC units

Air Duct Services: a summer must
Think of the ductwork in a home as highways for hot and cold air. Hot and cold air produced by heating and cooling systems is then pumped through and shuttled along these highways, efficiently and reliably to each room in a home.
Research has demonstrated that up to a 25% loss in energy efficiency can be caused by poorly installed ductwork, ductwork that has become damaged, blocked, or when seals and joints have become loose or worn down. This makes annual duct inspection and cleaning a must, especially before heavy use seasons such as summer and winter.
Summer is also a period during which heat and moisture can combine to create a breeding ground for harmful mold spores, bacteria, viruses, allergens and pollutants. Air duct cleaning and inspection conducted by a professional ensures that the air being pumped into a home or business is clean and healthy.
