How To Cut Home Energy Costs With Quality Insulation

Air that leaks through the roof and exterior walls of your home results in excessive energy production and will raise your utility costs. A well-sealed home that includes proper insulation can make a significant dent in your utility bills.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, homeowners can save an estimated 15 percent on heating and cooling simply by air sealing their homes and adding insulation to the attics, floors, and over crawl spaces and basements.

Most Homes In The US Will Benefit

Most homes in the US are under-insulated, which results in significant air leaks. Simply air sealing by caulking or weather-stripping around windows, doors, or any other location where air could escape can help you save energy. Adding additional insulation is the other way to ensure that your home remains energy efficient with comfortable interior temperatures, even through the harshest Northern Illinois weather.

Make Your Home More Temperature-Friendly

When you have the proper insulation levels, you reduce the amount of heated or cooled air that’s allowed to escape through the envelope of your home. The end result is that your home will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This is a benefit to both you and your pocketbook during the most temperature-extreme weather of the year.

You’ll also have:

  • Reduced noise from outside the home
  • Less pollen, dust, and insects
  • Better humidity control
  • Reduced chance of ice dams on the roof
