Reasons to Insulate Your Home
Return on Investment
Once the installation is complete, you can expect to save on average 15% on your heating and cooling costs. Your savings could be greater if you’re in an older home. The North American Insulation Manufacturers Association estimates that 90% of U.S. homes are under-insulated, and only 20% of homes built before 1980 are well insulated. Adding proper insulation also adds to the value of your home when it comes time to sell.
If you feel like your home is too hot in the summer, or too cold in the winter, the problem may not lie with your HVAC system. Your attic’s improper insulation may be the culprit. Properly insulating your attic will protect you from having your air conditioning or heat flow out of your attic, and keep it in your home where it belongs.
If you’re concerned about the effect of energy use on the environment, insulation definitely lessens the amount of energy your home uses and loses. Installing insulation helps reduce energy loss in a number of areas in the house. A great place to start is the attic, as about 25% of a home’s energy can be lost through the attic.
PSO customers have another reason to look into insulation. PSO considers installing attic insulation an energy-saving project and will provide a rebate on your installation. If you pair it with other energy-savings upgrades, the rebate would be more. Ask your A-Best representative about the rebates during your consultation.
