Energy Saving Tips: Home Insulation Savings

Do you have cold floors and walls in winter, drafty rooms, mould on walls or in basement or unusually high heating and cooling bills? If so, these are signs that you may need more insulation and air sealing.

Heating can account for more than 60% of your energy bill and up to 25% of your home heating costs may be attributed to leaking through doors, windows, outlets and vents. Proper air sealing and insulation can reduce energy use, make your home more comfortable year-round and lower your carbon footprint.
