Adding more insulation, again!

January 4th, 2009 at 01:39 pm

Today we went to the local Lowes with a 10% off coupon and $40 worth of free gift cards (earned during a gift card sale they offered in Dec) to get insulation for our new to us house. We received a quote for $1200 to insulate the ceiling of our basement (the concrete, unfinished portion). We picked up everything we needed for less than $250! That saves us about $1000!! My husband is currently installing the insulation and wrapping the ductwork that goes through this room too. We can already tell a difference in the rooms above this area!

This is on top of the significant money we spent earlier in this year to have the attic insulated and the house air sealed. That alone increased our efficiency by over 20%. I can't even imagine how much the utility bills are for the neighbors around us that still have the builder grade insulation!

I really hope this is the end of the insulation...I can't imagine that there's anything left to insulate!
