With warmer temperatures upon us and summer around the corner, news stories of skyrocketing natural gas prices and rising oil prices, homeowners now have more incentive than since the energy crisis of the 70’s to take steps to ensure their homes are energy efficient.
Upgrading your attic insulation is one of the most important things to look for to upgrade the energy efficiency of your home. In fact, heat or air conditioning escaping through the attic may be responsible for up to one half of your home’s entire loss. Proper insulation levels will keep your home more comfortable as well as help soundproof and weatherize your house for optimum living quality.
The great benefit of insulation is it will save you money year-round. We only use products that are Green Guard Certified and have the benefits that we feel make them superior.
Here are just a few benefits of a product we do use:
- Won’t Settle
- No Chemicals
- No Formaldehyde
- No Asbestos
- Won’t Absorb Moisture
- No Substance for Vermin to feed off of.
Example of a product we don’t use: Cellulose is the most inexpensive insulation on the market. The problem is it is made of recycled newspaper with fire retardant chemicals sprayed all over it. Because it is organic, it eventually becomes a food source for Vermin to feed off of.
