Insulation is a key component of any energy-efficient home. Insulation helps to regulate the temperature in homes, reduce energy consumption, and save homeowners money on their energy bills. Here are some of the benefits of insulation for Connecticut homeowners, thanks to Energize CT:

  1. Energy Efficiency: Insulation is one of the most effective ways to improve the energy efficiency of a home. Insulation helps to keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reducing the need for heating and cooling systems and lowering energy bills.
  2. Cost Savings: Insulation can help homeowners save money on their energy bills by reducing energy consumption. This can result in significant cost savings over time for homeowners who insulate their homes.
  3. Comfort: Insulation can help regulate the temperature in homes, providing a more comfortable living space for homeowners. Insulation can also help to reduce drafts and improve indoor air quality, making homes more comfortable to live in.
  4. Noise Reduction: Insulation can also provide noise reduction benefits for homeowners. Insulation can help to reduce noise pollution from outside, making homes quieter and more peaceful.Energize CT rebates make insulation upgrades accessible and affordable for all, covering up to 75-100% of insulation costs!

The cost of insulation typically depends on factors such as the square footage of the area to be insulated, the type of insulation material chosen, and the labor costs involved in the installation process. Different insulation materials have different costs per square foot, with some materials being more expensive than others.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy; attic insulation can save homeowners an average of $180 per year, resulting in a total savings of $3,600 over a 20-year period. Similarly, wall insulation can save homeowners an average of $200 per year, resulting in a total savings of $4,000 over 20 years.

It’s important to note that these figures are general averages and can vary based on the factors mentioned earlier, such as the specific characteristics of the home, climate conditions, and energy usage patterns.

On average, studies have shown that improving insulation in homes can result in energy savings ranging from 10% to 50%, depending on the starting conditions and the extent of the upgrade. Research from the U.S. Department of Energy suggests that an average annual saving of $180 could be achieved by homeowners who opt to insulate their attics. With this in mind, over a two-decade period, the total savings could accumulate to a remarkable $3,600.

Likewise, choosing to insulate your walls could also offer substantial financial advantages, with average yearly savings projected at $200. This implies that a 20-year timespan could potentially witness a total saving of $4,000.

Investing in insulation upgrades, therefore, not only contributes to a more energy-efficient home but also translates to notable cost savings in the long term. It’s important to note that individual savings will vary based on factors specific to your home and energy usage habits. To get a more accurate estimate of potential savings, it is recommended to start with an energy audit to assess your home’s insulation needs and provide personalized energy-saving projections based on your specific circumstances.
