With escalating energy prices, it is no wonder that many homeowners are looking at ways to save on home energy costs. The insulation system in your home is perhaps one of the most important components for maintaining a healthy, comfortable and energy efficient home. A well insulated home will lower your heating and cooling bills, reduce noise, and create a healthier environment for your family to live.
Whether you live in an existing home or are building a new home, there are several things that can be done to improve the insulation and overall comfort in your home. Many homes simply do not have enough insulation in the attic and walls. Over the years the building codes have changed, generally requiring more and more insulation. Consequently many homes are not up to current standards.
For example, attics in Central Ontario require a minimum of R32 which is about 10 inches depending on the type of insulation (R50 is actually recommended).
