IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO BETTER INSULATE
Attic insulation can dramatically improve the comfort of your home during heavy winter weather. According to the EPA, proper attic insulation can reduce heating bills by as much as 40 percent, depending on the initial insulation level in your home. Homes older than 10 years often don’t meet current insulation standards of an R-49 or better insulation value. Click here to learn more about attic insulation and R-Values.
