Tri-County Roofing Can Help
Its beginning to look a lot like winter! Did you know that Tri-County Roofing offers blown in insulation for your house which can keep you warm AND save you money on your electric bill? Blown-in insulation is where the fiberglass/cellulose is in tiny chunks and sent through a large hose into the area, leaf-blower style. This process ensures that every crevice is covered vs large pieces called batts that have to be cut to fit.
Heating and cooling your American home accounts for 50 ? 70% of your home energy use. Unless your home was constructed with special attention to energy efficiency, adding insulation will probably reduce your utility bills. Much of the existing housing stock in the U.S. is not insulated to the optimal level. Older homes are likely to use more energy than newer homes, usually due to inadequate insulation and air leakage. Insulation saves money. It also makes your home more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature through the house. (Michigan State University Extension)
Not Just For Winter
Although in these chilly winter months, we put on our layers and jackets for what we consider “insulation”, better insulation isn’t just for winter. Homeowners can reduce their energy bills by up to 25% in the summer months, and almost 50% in the winter months simply by upgrading insulation into their homes.
