★ Many older homes have inadequate attic insulation. Home Insulation recommends R-49, for attic insulation. Anything less than that can mean wasted money going right through your roof.

★ Many homes built before 1975 did not have insulation installed in the exterior walls or under the floor. Un-insulated walls can cost homeowners and renters up to 12% extra on their heating bills and un-insulated floors up 30%.

★ Many of the local utilities offer low interest loans or cash rebates to homeowners and landlords willing to increase their home's energy efficiency by adding insulation. EWEB, SUB, Blachley-Lane, EPUD and Lane Electric customers may qualify for rebates for upgrading your insulation. Call Home Insulation for more details.

★ Heating and cooling account for 50% to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. About 20% goes for heating water. On the other hand, lighting and appliances and everything else account for only 10% to 30% of the energy used in most homes.

★ Unless your home was recently constructed with special attention to energy efficiency, adding insulation will probably reduce your utility bills. Most existing homes in the United States are not insulated as well as they should be.

★ Insulating your home will typically save enough money in reduced utility bills to pay for itself within a few years, continue to save you money for as long as you own the home, and increase the resale value of your home.
