Insulation by Dalco, save money on heat and air conditioning bills by adding to your attic insulation. Dalco features blown in insulation and can bring your home up to the advised R value for the metro area. You may even be able to save additional money with energy tax credits (consult your advisor).
Homeowners prefer Owens Corning PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation 7 to 1 because it maintains insulating power over time. Since fiber glass does not absorb moisture, PINK insulation will not hold water, preventing permanent loss of R-value. When properly installed, PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation will not settle or deteriorate to maintain insulating value. The insulating materials in PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation are also noncombustible.
There are a number of different ways, in addition to insulating your home, to save energy and help ensure that your home is energy efficient. Year-round you should do the following to maximize energy efficiency.
- Weatherize. Check for drafts around windows and doors with a piece of tissue paper attached to a string. If the paper moves, air is leaking in or out. Adding the proper amount of weatherstripping and caulking can increase energy savings by up to 10%.
- Close off unoccupied rooms.
- Insulate hot water heater, pipes and ducts.
- Install water-saver shower heads or flow restrictors. These inexpensive devices will pay for themselves in a few months.
- Install energy-efficient doors and windows which can help reduce fuel costs up to 15%.
- Choose energy-efficient kitchen appliances. They may cost more initially, but can save you money by reducing your energy use.
