According to the Alliance to Save Energy, “It turns out that about half of the homes in the United States are under-insulated.” Heating and cooling cost account for up to 70% of most energy bills. If this winter has left you with high utility bills, and you want to save money going into the summer months, improving your homes insulation is a good place to start.
Whether your home is older or recently built, many builders don’t put enough insulation in your home. At Cipriani Remodeling Solutions we can inspect your home and identify areas where installing more insulation or improving the existing insulation would help to make your home more energy efficient.
Here are some areas of your home that could benefit from additional insulation:
- Attic. Many homes have limited insulation in the attic. As you pump heat into your home during the winter, the heat will rise and escape through your attic if not properly insulated.
- Basement. If you have an unfinished basement the heat from your home could be escaping through your floor boards. Wood floors are not tightly sealed and with direct exposure to a basement the heat can easily seep through. This can also make your floors a lot colder when you walk on them. For toasty feet insulate your basement and consider installing heated floors.
- Walls. Walls without enough insulation can be bad for your energy bill and for privacy. There is nothing worse than sitting at the dining table and hearing the toilet flush in the hallway. We can increase the privacy in your home by installing additional insulation.
- Garage. The interior garage wall needs to be insulated to help prevent the cold in the garage from seeping into your home.
