Improve Home Insulation and Save Money

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Most homeowners want the temperature of their home to be comfortable while decreasing their energy bills at the same time. This sounds like a conflict right? You can achieve both by improving home insulation. Contact Custom Insulation and we can take a look at your insulation and makes some recommendations for you. We will take a look at the insulation panels, check for air leaks, and check the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling ducts. They will then recommend changes that will improve the insulation of your home.

If your home has any of the following, that may be a sign of poor insulation.

  • Damp or musty smells
  • Drafts of cold air
  • Peeling wall paint
  • Some rooms being colder than the others
  • Cold floors
  • Frequent running of the HVAC unit

Depending on the cause of the poor insulation, we may recommend Insulating the attic and/or crawl spaces.

When you install better home insulation you will be able to see a substantial reduction in your energy bill for years. New insulation can also be used as a selling point when you decide to move. Most importantly, your home will have uniform temperature in every season.

Spring is the Time for Home Energy Savings

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Spring is the perfect time to make some adjustments to save on your energy costs. Most homeowners think about their heating bills in the fall and winter. But many should consider electricity bills as the weather warms up too. Electricity is at a premium in the warmer months. By making your home more efficient you can save as much or more when it’s hot outside.
 
Good insulation in your home is important in the warm weather in Worcester too while you are trying to cool your homes. When attic and ceiling fans are combined with the right insulation and ventilation, you will save money in the summer and protect your roof and shingles in the winter.

Good insulation will help prevent heat transfer into the house in the summer,  while a cold attic in the winter reduces the likelihood of ice dams.

Increase the comfort of your home with the right insulation. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates a homeowner can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs by sealing and insulating around the home.

Save Money on the Biggest Bill you have with Proper Home Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 27, 2012

If you are a homeowner, you can save hundreds of dollars a year and do your part for the environment by properly insulating your home.

Around 60% of the heat or cooled air from your home can be lost through improperly insulated walls and roofs. Obviously, this adds unnecessary dollars to your energy bills.

Contact Custom Insulation to properly insulate your ceilings, walls or other building cavities and save money all year round on your home energy bills. As energy and gas bills rise, cutting costs wherever possible makes the most sense. Ensuring that your home has the proper insulation can save you money on the largest bill you have.

If your home does not have the proper attic insulation or wall insulation, or if you are not sure about the insulation in your home, contact us.

Testimonial to New Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 28, 2012

At Custom Insulation, this is some feedback we received from a customer who purchased a wood burning stove from us, and had their second floor bedroom ceiling insulation replaced.

“I have an antique home, and last winter we got ice dams. During the repair process, I the attic insulation replaced in my bedroom ceiling. The difference in the warmth of my home throughout the winter was very noticeable. I realize that this was a more mild winter, but cold is cold, and you still have to heat your home.

We use our wood burning stove primarily to heat our home, and with increased and better insulation in the second floor ceiling, the oil heat barely ever came on - all winter long.  The upstairs of our home used to be very cold throughout the winter and very hot throughout the summer. I can’t wait to see what happens this summer. I suspect that it will be so much cooler and enjoyable.
 
The difference in my oil heating bill was outrageous, in fact we have not used an entire tank! The difference was so great, that this spring I am going to have the rest of the upstairs and attic insulation replaced.”
