Checking Your Attic Insulation
Time to take out your ruler! Head up to your attic and see how much insulation is up there. If you have less than 16 inches, you could use some more. Attic insulation should be between 16” & 19” (in the R50-55 range) to minimize heat loss. R60 is required in Labrador.
Top-up your attic insulation, and you could be looking at up to $250† in annual savings!
CHECKING YOUR BASEMENT INSULATION
Having enough basement insulation is very important! But how do you know how much you should have? You’ve gotta check your R-values (see table below).
By properly insulating your basement, you could save over $450† a year!
