Most older homes have less insulation than homes built today, but even newer homes unless specifically designed to be energy efficient could benefit from increased or better insulation. To figure out whether you need more insulation and where you might need it, you first should find out how much insulation your home has and where that insulation is. If there are any places in your home (such as your attic) where you see falling insulation, that means you’re wasting energy!
During a home energy assessment, an energy auditor will let you know if there are any places in your home that are lacking in insulation or could benefit from newer insulation. They will also let you know about rebates and incentives that may be available that could help pay for the work you need done. Also, the increased insulation and therefore increased efficiency of your home will reduce your heating and cooling costs that will help you save even more money!
