Did you know that 9 out of 10 homes in the U.S. are under-insulated?* Sealing air leaks around your home and adding insulation can help you be more comfortable and save more than 11% on your home’s energy bills. The attic is where you can often find the greatest opportunities to increase energy efficiency. Do you know how your attic’s insulation level measures up? This season, take the first step by measuring your attic’s insulation, so you can “Rule Your Attic!”
From October 23 – November 17, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program will be sharing expert tips and resources to help you check your attic’s insulation level and take actions to enjoy a more comfortable, energy-efficient home.
Follow the hashtag #RuleYourAttic on Facebook and Twitter, or visit ENERGY STAR for expert advice with do-it-yourself tips and suggestions for working with a contractor. You can even get personalized advice from EPA experts by sending pictures, videos, or questions with the #RuleYourAttic hashtag to ENERGY STAR social media accounts or by emailing [email protected].
What do you do if ENERGY STAR recommends hiring a contractor? Check your local area for companies with good references and reviews. According to Maryland Department of Labor’s O’Connor, “Too often, we see that homeowners who hire the cheapest contractor end up paying the most money when they fall victim to an unlicensed contractor.” Complete Home Solutions is certainly an extremely accredited insulation contractor and would love to come out and help you Rule Your Attic!
