Like most Calgarians, you’re tired of the long cold winter we’ve had. Despite the enjoyable ski trips to the mountains, you’d rather be out mowing your lawn or enjoying the outdoors!
Did you know that the Alberta government is offering a strong rebate program for home owners choosing to upgrade the insulation in their home? The current rebate program repays you between 30-50% of your input costs. And in addition to the rebate for these very important upgrades to your house, you should see a reduction of 8-10% on your energy bill. Take a look at the information at Efficiency Alberta, which by the way, we’re an approved contractor for Energy Efficiency Alberta.
The R-value of insulation measures its resistance to heat transfer. The higher an insulation’s R-value, the better it will keep the heat inside your home where it belongs.
One of the easiest ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home is to increase your attic insulation. Most homes 10 years or older in the Calgary market have an insulation value of R30 whilst the new and current building code requires R50. To meet this code, your home needs 18.5″ of blown-in attic insulation. Bringing your home up to code will help your wallet and the environment!
