Protecting your home with USA Insulation will lower energy consumption and reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. In the average American home, 50-70% of the energy used can be attributed to heating and cooling. Most energy waste in the home is due to inadequate insulation and air leaks. Green insulation will not only save you money, but you will be doing your part to save limited energy resources. Your Carbon Footprint represents the impact your activities have on the environment, with regard to the amount of greenhouse gases produced, and is measured in units of carbon dioxide. Two of the largest segments of the average person's Carbon Footprint are electricity (12%) and gas, oil & coal (15%).
Factors to consider when planning to insulate your home include the local climate, the size and shape of your home, your family's living habits, and the type of heating and cooling systems you use. Get off to a green start by getting an energy audit of your home. An energy audit is an inspection and analysis of the energy flow in your home. This type of survey will help you reduce energy consumption and improve your family's comfort, health and safety. ENERGY STAR is a program backed by the US Department of Energy and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The program works to save businesses and consumers money, while protecting the environment, through the use of energy efficient products.
