The Department of Energy estimates there are millions of homes in the U.S. that are under insulated. Homes that are not warm in winter and cool in summer may be under insulated. Without the correct amount of insulation, homeowners quite literally are losing money through the roof. The most cost effective way to reduce monthly utility expenses for a home is adding Cellulose Insulation in the attic and walls.
Do not assume that a recently built house is energy-efficient. Building codes in many areas do not require insulation levels that meet the recommendations of U.S. Department of Energy. See the Department of Energy Zip Code Zone Tool to find the recommended insulation levels by zip code. Then use Fiberlite's Savings Calculator to determine the estimated savings for upgrading insulation.
In addition to upgrading attic insulation, an existing home may benefit from adding insulation into the walls. Cellulose Insulation is the perfect solution. It may be added to walls without the need for a costly renovation of the interior wall finish. It is simply blown into the wall cavities through small holes, which are easily plugged or patched.
While insulation is the single-most important component in achieving home energy-savings and comfort, many other factors can lead to excessive energy consumption. A whole-house energy audit may be performed, including infrared imaging and air leakage testing, to determine what solutions may be best for a home.
