Lower Your Energy Bills with Attic Insulation

Over the past several years, especially since Covid, electric bills are at an all time high. Electric costs are higher, fuel costs for the power plants are higher and the temperatures in the summer are hotter and for longer. All of this is contributing to higher electric bills.

Now there are several ways to reduce your electric bills, most of them either require upgrading your home appliances or adding better insulation. Here is my personal list for better energy efficiency.

  1. Add more attic insulation – The cheapest and most bang for your buck. On average, you can save 30-40% a year on your electric bill.
  2. Air seal your attic system – This sometimes requires removal of your old insulation, which will allow us to properly air seal your attic and then we can install new and better attic insulation.
  3. Hybrid Water Heaters – We don’t sell or install Hybrid Water heaters, but they are great a reducing the amount of electric you use each month. Hybrid Water Heaters use a reverse method of removing the heat from your garage and the surrounding environment and moving that energy into your water tank. On average, this will save you 80% or about $45-50 a month on your electric bill. Hybrid water heaters usually run from $2200 to $3000 installed.
  4. Variable Speed Pool Pumps – Again, we do not install variable speed pool pumps, but they can save you $35-45 a month in electric. Variable speed pool pumps usually from $1500 installed.
  5. Heat Rejection Window Film or Tint – This is a great idea for homes that do not have double pain or Low-E coated windows. Heat Rejection films reject IR heat from entering and is a cheaper alternative to replacing all your windows.
  6. AC Tune Up – An AC check-up or tune-up should be done at least every 2 years. This usually involves cleaning your outside coils, sometimes your inside coils and the AC tech will check your high and low pressures to make sure they are within spec. This tune-up can usually keep your HVAC system running a peak efficiency.
  7. New AC – If you HVAC system is more than 15 years old, it probably needs to be replaced for a more efficient unit. The new units are generally 20-40% more efficient that outgoing units.
  8. New Windows – If your home was build in the late 90’s or later, you home probably does not have energy rated double pain and low-e coated windows. New window are expensive and expect to pay between $15K to $30K depending on the size of you home. Expect a savings of 10-15% on your energy bill.

Most cost effective and beneficial for our circumstances…

Dennis called to schedule an in-home free estimate for services right away. He came out the same day, on the weekend. He was able to assess what would be most cost effective and beneficial for our circumstances. He beat the competition by a great amount and was polite and cleaned up afterwards. He explained everything that was to be done and suggested what might be beneficial in the future. Overall, I don’t think we could have had a better experience finding someone for this job. Shout out to his helper Lee as well.

Level of service…

A+++. Excellent service. Could not believe the level of service and the explanation of insulation and what was best for my home. Thanks again.

Cooler house…

We had our home blown in by Dennis and his Team. The house has plenty of insulation in the front access, but upon inspection, we only had between 4″ and 5″ in the rest of the house. We had an additional 10″ blown into the house.
