Home is Where The Heat Is
Make your new house into your forever-home by ensuring it is outfitted for the future. You have enough on your plate with a new mortgage. Did you know that heating and cooling costs make up the highest percentage of your energy bills? So, why not take this opportunity to get ahead by installing the highest rated insulation on the market. That adds up to an average energy savings of 50% as opposed to the 30% provided by less efficient types of insulation.
If you are looking to insulate an attic, one of the most popular solutions is blown in cellulose insulation. Cellulose is a mixture of recycled newspaper and wood that is typically treated with a chemical that provides both fire and pest resistance. The R-value (thermal resistance) for cellulose insulation is estimated at R3.5 for every inch of thickness. It's a quick and effective solution so that you don't have to worry about your energy costs in your new home, and because it's a recycled material you'll also be doing your part to help the environment.
