Does your home need more insulation? Unless your home was constructed with special attention to energy efficiency, adding insulation will probably reduce your utility bills. Many of the existing homes in the US were not insulated to the levels that are used today. On top of this, older homes are likely to use more energy than newer homes, leading to higher heating and air-conditioning bills.
Where and How Much
Adding insulation where you already have some insulation, such as in an attic, will save energy. You can save even greater amounts of energy if you install insulation into places in your home that have never been insulated. Some of the building spaces that should be insulated might include an un-insulated floor over a garage or crawlspace, or a wall that separates a room from the attic.
Unless your home in Worcester and surrounding towns was specially constructed for energy efficiency, you can probably reduce your energy bills by adding more insulation. In fact, many older homes have less insulation than newly built homes. But adding insulation to a newer home can pay for itself.
