Canadian winters are magical but also cold and long. With the long cold nights headed our way and outdoor projects wrapping up now is the perfect time to tackle something that will not only increase your comfort over winter but save money. When it comes to energy-efficient renovations, an often overlooked home upgrade is insulation.
Insulation is not stylish or attractive but adds a level of comfort. Generally heating your home accounts for 50% of energy expenses in Canada. So maintaining that heat in your home is crucial.
Your basement or crawl space is a prime source of heat loss that is often overlooked. Basements can account for 20 – 30% of your house’s energy loss.
Blown-in insulation in your attic is another fix that is passed over for luxury or designer upgrades to your house but can be one of the best investments you make. Not only does it prevent heat loss, lower chance of ice dams in your gutters, but you’ll just be more comfortable in your home.
