Check with Your Local Utility Companies for Rebates on Attic Insulation Published on July 15, 2016 Residential attic insulation is an easy way to help your Kitchener home to be more energy-efficient. A well-insulated home, specifically in the attic, helps keep cool air in during the cooling season and prevents warm air from escaping during the heating season. It can also help lower your energy bills since your heating and cooling systems aren’t having to work overtime to keep your home at the ideal temperature in the extreme Kitchener temperatures. Not only can adding to your home’s attic insulation help lower your monthly heating and cooling bills, you may also be able to receive rebates from your Kitchener area energy corporations to help offset the cost of the new insulation. Some cities offer up to $0.15 per square foot in rebates, while others offer a flat-rate residential attic insulation rebate. To discover more about the savings in your city, call your energy company or visit http://dsireusa.org for further information on energy efficiency rebates for your house.
