In this video Ryan from RoofCo uses a thermal image camera to show homeowners a simple way to evaluate where your home may be losing heat, and costing you extra money each month.
Astonishingly, 90% of existing American homes are under insulated! That means 90% of existing American homes are wasting money, energy and are not providing their owners with optimal comfort. In addition, an under insulated home will have a higher carbon footprint creating a negative impact on the environment. This is according to Hersindex.com.
Research conducted by Dr. Jonathan Levy, a Professor of Environmental Health at Boston University School of Public Health showed that if all U.S. homes were fitted with insulation based on the updated 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), residential electricity use nationwide would drop by about 5 percent and natural gas use by more than 10 percent.
Dr Levy's research also showed that by increasing insulation in U.S. homes across the country, not only did energy usage decrease but there was also a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions as well as other pollutants.
