When it gets cold outside we usually grab a blanket to help stay warm. Wrap your home in a blanket by adding insulation to areas like the attic, basement walls, and crawlspaces. Additional insulation can help to reduce your yearly energy costs and make your home more comfortable.
You can make the biggest impact to your energy savings by adding insulation to that attic area of your home. If you are able to access your attic, make a general inspection of your average insulation depth. A recommended R-Value for the Rochester and Southeastern MN area is between R49 and R60 for attics. This can mean adding anywhere from 12-24 inches of blown fiberglass insulation on top of what you may already have in your attic.
