Canadians can now further save on home energy bills

NC — Conserving energy in the home during the winter months makes financial sense for homeowners who see their energy bills skyrocket as the weather gets colder. And with as much as half of the energy used in your home going to heating and cooling, making smart decisions about your home's heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.

“One great way to help reduce your energy consumption is to make sure your attic insulation is topped-up as part of regular home maintenance,” says David Flood, insulation expert at Owens Corning. “This ensures that the heat is kept in the house and any drafts are kept out, saving homeowners up to 28 per cent on heating bills.”

To ensure your home is energy efficient this winter, insulate using PINK™ FIBERGLAS® insulation made with EcoTouch™ PureFiber™ technology. The new line of PINK™ insulation is made with natural*** materials and over 70** per cent recycled content, the highest in the industry. Using the new technology from Owens Corning ensures that your home will be insulated with sustainable products. In addition to making your home energy efficient, installing insulation will save* you money on your heating bills by keeping in warm air during the winter.

To get started, seal in any areas of the attic that will let in a draft, such as along windows or between walls, using caulking. Next, install up to 15 inches of PINK™ FIBERGLAS® batts or up to 18 ¾ inches of PROPINK® Blown-in insulation to ensure that your attic meets recommended standard of R-50 for optimum warmth and comfort. Keeping your attic insulation topped up this year will ensure that heat is kept in during the winter months to keep your family cozy.
