Products that Keep You Comfortable & Protect the Environment
There are many benefits to insulating your home, including environmental benefits. Using insulation is a positive way to protect the environment—especially when you choose USA Insulation. Read below to learn why.
Insulation Reduces Your Carbon Footprint
Your “carbon footprint” is the amount of greenhouse gases produced by your lifestyle and daily activities, measured in terms of carbon dioxide units.
You may not realize it, but on average:
- 12% of your carbon footprint consists of your use of electricity
- 15% of your carbon footprint consists of your use of gas, oil, and coal
- 50% to 70% of the energy used by your home consists of heating and cooling
The majority of energy waste in your home is caused by poor insulation. Air leaks can make your home inefficient and cost you money. Green home insulation installation can dramatically reduce your energy usage while cutting back greenhouse gas emissions. Not only will proper insulation keep you and your family comfortable, it will also increase your energy efficiency, helping you save green and reduce your carbon footprint.
Schedule a Home Energy Audit
You will need to take multiple factors into consideration when insulating your home:
- Your energy consumption
- Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC)
- Your geographical region and climate
- Your home’s dimensions
An effective place to start is to schedule a home energy audit. This inspection will measure your energy consumption and your home’s energy flow, and provide you with useful information and helpful tips for reducing your energy use.
