Insulation

Most Homes Waste Over $1000 a Year Through Energy Loss.

The average home should experience a complete air change every couple of hours. In other words, all of the air in the home should be replaced with new, fresh air in this time. In most homes, this occurs more often due to low insulation levels, which causes your heating and cooling systems to work harder, resulting in you paying higher energy bills each month.

Did you know that most homes across the country are under insulated? Most homes built before 1990's have little or no insulation in them at all. Many new homes that are built today are only insulated to meet the bare minimum code requirements which are usually not even close to near the government recommendations.

The map below provides you with a recommended R value for homes across the country depending on climate type as well as heating type (oil, gas, or electric.) You can find your home's location on the map and refer to the color and zone coded chart below to determine the government recommended R-Value for your specific location.

What is R-Value?

Insulation is measured in 'R' values. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Insulation makes walls, floors, and ceilings warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It also makes your home more comfortable by helping maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house, not just right by your vents. Lastly, it helps save you money!
