ATTIC INSULATION CAN SAVE YOU MONEY THIS WINTER

Fed up with high heating bills? When was the last time you checked your attic insulation? There are a number of reasons your attic insulation may not be performing well. Uneven, wet, or compressed insulation will not insulate properly. It is also possible you don’t have enough insulation.

MANY ILLINOIS HOMES ARE UNDER INSULATED

If you have not upgraded your attic insulation in years, you may want to consider doing so. Depending on your current level of insulation, you could save as much as 40 percent off your heating bill this winter by upgrading your insulation.

For decades, home builders were not held to today’s energy efficient standards. Homes were built with minimal attic insulation.  Even many homes built after 2000 are now considered “under insulated” according to current energy standards and local codes.

ATTIC INSULATION IS A GOOD INVESTMENT

As heating costs rise year after year, attic insulation is one proven way to combat these increases. In fact, attic insulation can pay for itself in just a few seasons, depending on the current level of insulation. Home insulation is one of the top home improvement with a good return on investment.

EPA RECOMMENDED INSULATION STANDARDS

Insulation performance levels are specified by an R-Value. The R-Value is a measure of insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-Value the better the thermal performance of the insulation.

Attic insulation should be an “R49” or better here in the Midwest. Click here to view the EPA insulation standards Map.
