Three Reasons to Insulate Your Attic

Three Reasons to Insulate Your Attic

When you think of upgrading insulation, attic space is the first thing that comes to mind. Here are three key reasons to upgrade your attic insulation and seal attic air leaks:

  1. Air movement through a home is from ground to sky (and out through the attic and roof). By adding insulation and sealing air leaks in your attic, you can lower energy costs by preventing conditioned air from escaping your home.
  2. On the flip side, insulating and air sealing your attic can prevent unconditioned outside air from coming into your home. This means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain your home’s optimal inside temperature.
  3. Heating and cooling costs can total 50% to 70% of the energy used in an average home. In fact, in late 2016 the Energy Information Administration predicted natural gas users would see a 22% climb in their heating bills over the 2015-2016 heating season. Every day that passes is one more day your home is spending too much money on energy bills.

Adding insulation to your attic is one of the most cost-effective ways to save money on your energy bills each month. Wondering if your home could benefit from additional attic insulation? Contact us today for a free attic insulation estimate.

The Two Best Energy Investments for Your Home

The Two Best Energy Investments for Your Home

Spray Foaming the Attic
If you would like to increase your home's energy efficiency, we recommend investing in two key projects – insulation/air sealing your home and your home's heating/cooling system.

Since the home is one contained unit, each system directly affects the other system. By taking a whole house approach to energy efficiency, the homeowner can experience a greater improvement in efficiency and comfort. And upgrading two systems can qualify the homeowner for rebates and other incentives.

Home energy improvements start with a home evaluation. A contractor will inspect the interior and exterior of the home to determine where energy improvements are needed.

Each home is different and recommendations can vary. However, there are some recommendations that a contractor will frequently make:

Air Sealing and Insulating
Leaks around a home allow conditioned air to escape and unconditioned outside air to enter. Leaks are often found in attics and around the perimeter of the basement. Sealing air leaks can reduce wear on your home’s heating and cooling system and help maintain your home’s internal temperature. If your attic doesn’t have adequate insulation, your contractor will likely recommend adding insulation.

Upgrading HVAC Equipment
If your heating and cooling system is more than 10 years old your contractor may recommend replacing it with a new, more efficient model. According to ENERGY STAR, when installed correctly high-efficiency heating and cooling units can save the homeowner up to 10% on annual utility bills. In addition, installing and properly using a programmable thermostat can save the homeowner up to $180 per year on heating and cooling costs.

Controlling the air that enters and exits the home and conditioning it with efficient equipment are two key steps to increase your home’s efficiency. By addressing both improvements you’ll see greater energy savings and enjoy a more comfortable home. Contact us for a free air sealing and insulation estimate today.

Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey was the strongest storm to make landfall in the Texas Coastal Bend area since Hurricane Carla in September 1961. The flooding resulting from Harvey's flooding is one of the worst weather disasters in U.S. history. It’s estimated the storm damage will amount to billions of dollars.

Even though Hurricane Harvey is off the front page of daily news, there’s no doubt the impact of this storm is far from over. The real heavy lifting of recovery and reconstruction is underway, and will continue for quite some time.

With many connections to the Houston area, the founders of DeVere Insulation Home Performance and its affiliated companies have been moved to assist. To this end, DeVere Insulation Home Performance along with DeVere Insulation, Delmarva Insulation, Delmarva Spray Foam, Foam InSEALators, Liberty Insulation, Southland Insulators and The Fifth Fuel have donated $28,000 to help with recovery efforts.

Bob and Carolyn DeVere along with Jerry and Nancy Palmer have selected two Texas charities to receive these funds – Samaritan’s Purse and Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries. Each organization received $14,000 to aid in their mission of helping local families recover from this tragedy.

We are proud to support our local communities and support others during times of tragedy. If you are moved, we encourage you to donate to one of these Houston-based organizations to help with Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
