Could your home use additional insulation?
Adding additional insulation to your home can help lower your utility bills. According to the Department of Energy, over 80 million homes have insufficient levels of attic insulation. The recommended level is 18″. Without enough insulation, your heating and cooling unit has to work longer and harder to keep your home cool, and that leads to high utility bills. It can also mean your home is not as energy efficient as is could be.
According to the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA), 90 percent of single family homes in the US are under insulated.
