Protect Your Home
Insulating your home helps to minimize your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of energy you consume, which is by-and-large produced—whether electricity or natural gas—using fossil fuels. In fact, if every building in the United States were properly insulated, the country would save 800 trillion BTUs of energy per year, and would enjoy substantial air quality benefits as a result (according to a recent Harvard University study on energy inefficiency).
During the winter months, snow and ice build up on top of your roof. If your attic isn't properly insulated, heat from your home moves into the attic, and warms the roof to the point that the underside of the built up snow and ice can melt. This creates a layer of water, trapped between the still-frozen snow and ice above, and your roof below. This process rots and destroys thousands of roofs in Michigan every winter.
Furnace and air conditioner
Since your air conditioner and furnace have to work harder in an uninsulated home to replace air that is lost, having WeatherGard properly insulate your home can extend the lifespan of your heating and cooling systems. This can save you significant money over the long term.
