Residential attic insulation is an easy way to help your Hurricane home to have better energy efficiency. A well-insulated home, specifically in the attic, helps trap in cool air during the summer and prevents warm air from escaping during the heating season. It can also help save you money since your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems aren’t having to work constantly to keep your home at the ideal temperature in the extreme Hurricane temperatures.
Not only can upgrading your home’s attic insulation help decrease your monthly utility bills, you may also be qualified to receive rebates from your Hurricane area energy corporations to help offset the cost of the new insulation. Some regions provide up to $0.15 per square foot in rebates, while others offer a flat-rate residential attic insulation rebate. To learn more about the savings in your city, call your utility provider or visit http://dsireusa.org for further information on energy efficiency rebates for your home. In addition to attic insulation, the website has information on rebates related to hvac replacement for Hurricane homes.
