If you’ve never evaluated if your home is energy efficient or the quality of insulation in your home, now’s the time. Having a well-insulated outer envelope will mean big savings on your cooling bill. Here are some ways you can insulate your home and ensure it is energy efficient:

  • Upgrade windows and doors
  • Add weatherstripping around doors
  • Add caulking around window
  • Pump foam into, add rolled insulation, or add radiant barrier to walls
  • Add blown-in or rolled insulation to your attic
  • Add shades to your windows to block the sun
  • Plant vegetation that will block parts of your home from the sun when the sunlight is the most harsh

With these updates the R-value of each aspect should be improved. Take a look at the recommended R-values in your areas and make sure your upgrades meet the recommendations.
