Retrofit Insulation Projects
May 06, 2014
What does it mean to be green? Why is one product better than another product? How much energy will I save by adding more insulation to my attic, basement, or walls? More importantly, how much money can I save?
These are all important questions to ask when making any home renovation decision. Home renovation can include retrofitting a home with extra insulation. It is even possible to add insulation to existing walls. These renovations can result in significant savings - both in the winter and summer months - on heating and cooling costs.
Homes and buildings are built to a minimum code that is enforced by government and professional agencies. It is important to note that minimum code does not mean being green. However, home renovations such as retrofit insulation projects can significantly increase your home's energy sustainability and significantly decrease your carbon footprint.
So, how do you know what retrofit project is best for you and your home? How do you know what options you have given your specific situation? Ask us!
