Did you know that 90 percent of U.S. homes are estimated to be under-insulated*? So, your home is likely one of them. Many homes have been built without enough insulation. We are here to help.

NOW is the time to reinsulate!
By upgrading the insulation in your home, you may be able to get money back. The U.S. Federal Government is offering a tax credit of up to $500 (10% of the material cost) for homeowners who make certain energy efficiency upgrades in their home, like adding insulation. This tax credit applies to your principal residence, and the work must be completed by December 31, 2020. Don’t miss out on this chance to get money back for insulating your home. Please contact us if you have any questions about how you can take advantage of this unique opportunity.
Some things to consider when choosing an insulation product include:
- Ease of application
- Thermal performance
As you plan your reinsulation project, it’s important to consider how long you plan to stay in your home, monthly energy costs, temperature consistency and your budget. When scheduling your in-person consultation with Stevens, it’s helpful to include the household members who will help with the home insulation decision. We are here to help answer your energy efficiency questions and discuss the overall lifetime performance of insulation products.
