Many people are learning of the benefits of weatherization for their home. Ensuring all of the walls, foundation, attic/roof and crawl spaces are properly insulated is one of the best ways to make your home more energy efficient and greatly reduce heating and cooling costs.
Insulation reduces the heat flowing out of your home during the winter months. Ensuring that your home is properly insulated will help your save energy when the temperatures drop. Be sure to check the insulation in your attic. In older homes, this can be the most cost-efficient way to cut home heating costs. Prior to energy efficiency standards, homes were often built with little or no insulation. As a result, large amounts of heat is lost through walls, floors, and ceilings. Green choices of insulation for you to choose from include; Cellulose (recycled paper product), and Two Part Foam (sustainable product made partly from soy bean oil – instead of petroleum products).
