What if I have a new home, or already have insulation?

While most modern homes contain some amount of insulation, the majority are still poor energy performers. Homes in the Claremont area are no acception to that rule, and the reason behind this common deficiency is:  

  • Insulation is often improperly installed in the first place
  • Many types of insulation are prone to settle over time, reducing their performance
  • In order for a home to be energy efficient, it needs to be air sealed as well as insulated. The vast majority of homes have no (or insufficient) air sealing.

Insulation is only the first step to improving efficiency; you can always do more to increase your home's performance, reducing energy bills and increasing comfort. Reach out to us here at CHERP to learn more about energy efficiency, and what it can do for you and the environment.
