A properly insulated California home costs less to heat and cool and is more comfortable. Homes that are poorly insulated waste a lot of energy, which is bad for the environment and goes against many of the reasons why homeowners want to electrify their houses. Upgrading the insulation in your home will improve energy efficiency and help you on the path to electrification by:
Reducing energy waste
Lowering overall electricity and fossil fuel usage
Avoiding unnecessary “wear and tear” on your HVAC system
So how do you pick the right insulation contractor for your home? The Clean Energy Connection makes finding a qualified insulation company near you easy. We vet all contractors to ensure they complete clean energy projects and provide excellent customer service.
How New Insulation Makes Your Home More Energy Efficient and Healthier
Improving the insulation in your California home will save you money by lowering your heating and cooling bills. There are many different areas you can upgrade in your house, including:
Basement insulation (and basement encapsulation)
Crawl space insulation (and crawl space encapsulation)
Insulation reduces the speed of heat transfer between the building materials that make up your home to keep heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer. The HVAC system in a well-insulated home works less to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, which means you’ll be using less electricity (or fossil fuels) to keep your home comfortable, reducing your carbon footprint.
Using the Clean Energy Connection to Find the Right Contractor
Not all insulation contractors are the same! For everything from attic insulation upgrades to insulation and encapsulation in your basement or crawl space, you want to hire a company that is not only knowledgeable about energy efficiency and building science but also known to provide excellent customer service.
The Clean Energy Connection is 100% free for both homeowners and contractors, and we have no financial stake in which company you choose. Before listing a contractor in our directory, they must pass our strict vetting process. We prioritize companies with a track record of positive feedback to help you find a company you’ll be glad you called to improve your home.
