Heat gain or loss due to inadequate insulation is a leading cause of energy waste in most homes. According to an Environmental Protection Agency study, homeowners save between 10% and 20% on their heating and cooling bills each year by adding proper insulation and air-sealing. In older homes and homes with little or no insulation, the savings may be much higher.
If your insulation is already adequate, adding more insulation may not be the best investment. You may not save enough energy to recoup the cost of the insulation. However, if your home is poorly insulated or you have high energy bills, added insulation is likely to pay for itself within a few years. (Source: DOE Insulation Guide Vol. 17, May 2012).

Many local, state, and federal agencies provide incentives and tax credits for energy-efficient home improvements, such as upgrades in home insulation. Check the EPA’s Energy Star (www.energystar.gov) or the DOE-sponsored Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (www.dsireusa.org). Both sites are frequently updated and have a wealth of information regarding federal, state, local, and utility incentives and tax credits.
Besides the improved comfort and quality of the home environment (less humidity, stable temperatures), most people add insulation to lower their utility bills. Try our energy savings calculator to see what types of savings you might experience when upgrading insulation.
