When you think about preparing for Winter, how many of you think about the insulation levels in your attic or roof? We take for granted that our homes are insulated, but depending on when your home was built, or even who built it, you could have a wide range of insulation levels. Proper insulation could save you 10-60% on your heating and cooling bills over the course of a year! That means upgrading your insulation before the cold really hits could pay for itself in a relatively short period of time.
What types of insulation work best? How much do you need? Who should install it and when? These are just a few questions you need to ask before considering or performing an insulation installation or upgrade. While doing it yourself may save you money initially, you may want to consider a professional for both regulation compliance and health/safety reasons. Before you settle in for the Winter, why not check with an inspector to see if your insulation needs are being met? It could mean the difference between a cozy, pleasant winter, or a long, cold one!
