Tips For Improving Your Home’s Insulation
1. Think About The Savings
Adding insulation may be one of them, so check with the your Department of Energy to see if any of these rebates, credits, and/or savings apply to you if you install new insulation in your home.
2. Get An Energy Audit For Your Home
During an energy audit, the technician may conduct a blower door test, which uses a high-powered fan to reduce your home’s air pressure.
3. Understand The Different Types Of Insulation
-Blanket insulation – most commonly used. Comes in rolls or sheets and fits perfectly between rafters and wall joists.
-Blown-in Insulation – Made of recycled newspapers, fiberglass, or other materials that can be blown into a space to fill it.
-Spray foam – the most expensive, this insulation consists of chemicals that harden to fill a space and create an airtight barrier.
4. Install Insulation In The Right Places
Insulation is strategically placed to maximize energy efficiency and comfort. If your budget is tight, consider starting at the top of your home and working your way down as your budget permits.
