Residential attic insulation is common way to help your Long Island home to have better energy efficiency. A well-insulated home, especially in the attic, helps trap in cool air during the warm months and prevents warm air from escaping during the winter. It can also help save you money since your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems aren’t having to work nonstop to keep your home comfortable in the extreme Long Island temperatures.
Not only can adding to your home’s attic insulation help decrease your monthly heating and cooling bills, you may also be able to receive rebates from your Long Island area energy businesses to help cover the new insulation investment. Some regions give up to $0.15 per square foot in rebates, while others offer a flat-rate residential attic insulation rebate.
