Energy efficiency and “going green” is becoming increasingly important to homeowners. With all of the improvements that you can make to increase your home’s energy efficiency, there are few improvements that can match the impact of proper insulation from an energy savings and cost savings perspective. Your heating and cooling consumption can easily be reduced by 30-40% simply by properly insulating and air sealing your home. By receiving our Home Energy Assessment, we can gauge what type of insulation you need, problematic areas (pain points) of your home, and what services we can provide to increase efficiency, decrease utilities, and increase overall comfort of your home.

Insulation helps lead to decreased energy consumption, and therefore helps reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. Because insulation can help reduce your home’s carbon footprint, it is doing its part in helping keep the environment healthy.

Insulation is green by its very nature because it saves energy. So what is green insulation? Insulation could be considered green when it contains a high percentage of recycled materials; or when it doesn’t contain harmful substances or chemicals. Additionally, insulation could be considered green when it’s made of natural materials. Luckily for consumers, there are many green insulation materials to choose from in today’s market; including sheep’s wool, recycled denim, rigid polystyrene board, spray foam and cellulose.

Cellulose insulation is the most common and least expensive option for green insulation. As consumers, we contribute the materials for cellulose insulation already, as it is produced from recycled paper. Cellulose contains the highest recycled content of any product on the market and, because it interrupts the path of paper on the way to the landfill, it also helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
