Then don't overlook insulation. Heating engineers say that 4 inches of high quality thermal insulation will retain as much heat as a concrete wall 15 feet thick. They also point out that many homeowners lose large amounts of heat in winter through inadequate insulation. This can waste money and cause discomfort. You save several ways with good insulation. First, you use less heat in winter. Secondly, you can operate an air conditioner more economically in the summer. Thirdly, you are able to heat or cool with smaller, less expensive equipment, thus reducing installation costs, i The best time to get proper insulation Is when you build or remodel. You simply specify adequate fibrous and reflective insulation In floors, ceilings and walls. You may also consider dojible pane window glass, with a pocket of air between each pane. 1 You can also make substantial insulation Improvements In an existing home by locating and closing cracks and other openings. Another good money-saver Is to Install weatherstripplng around doors and windows. ) Regardless of whether you use our energy— low cost electricity—to heat and cool your home, we suggest that you Insulate properly for comfort... for savings.
