CUTTING COSTS AND INCREASING COMFORT CAN BE SIMPLER THAN MANY HOMEOWNERS REALIZE. A COZY, ENERGY-EFFICIENT HOME CAN DO MORE THAN LOWER UTILITY COSTS. IT ALSO HELPS REDUCE NOISE AND CAN IMPROVE RESALE VALUE.

THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY SAYS ADEQUATE INSULATION AND PROPER SEALING AND CAULKING CAN SAVE YOU TWENTY PERCENT ON HEATING AND COOLING COSTS. IF YOUR ATTIC HAS SIX INCHES OR LESS OF INSULATION, YOU NEED TO ADD MORE.

THERE ARE ALSO MANY REBATE AND TAX INCENTIVES THAT WILL SAVE YOU EVEN MORE. FIBERGLASS INSULATION WONʼT SETTLE OR LOSE INSULATING POWER OVER TIME. MADE FROM RECYCLED AND RENEWABLE MATERIALS, ITʼS NATURALLY NONCOMBUSTIBLE AND DOESNʼT REQUIRE ADDITIONAL HARSH FIRE-RETARDANT CHEMICALS. BLOW-IN INSULATION, SUCH AS CERTAINTEEDʼS PREMIUM BLOWING WOOLS, PROVIDE GREAT COVERAGE FOR ATTIC AREAS.

INSULATION CAN BE ADDED AS BATTS OR ROLLS, BLOWN INTO THE ATTIC OR EXISTING WALLS. DO IT YOURSELF OR HAVE A CONTRACTOR DO IT.
