Energy bills are high, and for many of us they’re getting even more expensive. These hot summer months are causing havoc on energy bills all over the country. But that doesn’t have to be the case.  Start saving energy this summer by installing Owens Corning insulation into your attic.

Choosing a roofing contractor is an important step. To find a professional, look for an Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractor in your area. These guys are the gurus of their profession. They have been specifically trained on how roofing, ventilation, and attic insulation work together to improve your homes energy efficiency and comfort.

Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractor

Owens Corning Preferred Roofing Contractors are part of a chosen network of roofing professionals selected specifically for their commitment to service, reliability and unparalleled craftsmanship. They meet high standards and satisfy strict requirements – all to give you the peace of mind that you’ve chosen the right contractor for the job.

Most of the time the biggest air leaks in your home can be traced to the attic, resulting in sky-high energy bills and a house that’s too warm in summer, and too cold in winter. However, the attic is one of the easier rooms to insulate and air seal, leading to improved home comfort, lower energy bills and a better overall energy performance.

 

The good news is that Tollefson Bros Exteriors has joined with Owens-Corning and is now offering “Expanding Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation” in attics. With the rise in utility costs to heat and cool our homes it was a very simple choice in deciding to offer this feature to both our new and old customers.

Home Energy Audit

If you haven’t already had an audit, this is a great place to start. A home energy audit essentially evaluates what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient.  You will receive a comprehensive report showing you which home improvements to your home may, when corrected, save significant amounts of money over time. It also includes the cost for the improvements and the estimated payback on investment. Plus, you will have the peace of mind that comes with a Minnesota roofing contractor who has qualified for Preferred status.

The Harvard School of Public Health estimates there are over 46 Million homes in the United States that are UNDERINSULATED!

A study from Harvard University’s School of Public Health shows that if the 46 million existing single-family homes in the United States that have inadequate insulation were retrofitted with additional insulation to meet the 2000 IECC, the benefits would include 240 fewer premature deaths, 6,500 fewer asthma attacks and 110,000 fewer restricted activity days per year.

This translates into a potential savings of $1.3 billion per year in averted costs such as health care, and $5.9 billion per year in additional savings associated with reduced energy consumption, paying back the initial cost of the insulation in about six years. How cool is that!

These results are an important indicator of the tremendous benefits we can realize by increasing the levels of insulation and energy efficiency in our homes. It also quantifies the benefits of energy efficiency on a national scale not seen before, which takes us far beyond energy savings and energy security. Now, it is clear that improving energy efficiency not only helps us as a nation, but also has an immediate, positive impact on us, as individuals, and our families.
