How Much Can Insulation Save?

Are you looking for ways to save on your energy bills? Been considering re-insulating your home? In our experience, insulation is one of the best ways to save money and maximize energy efficiency. Many homeowners want to know specifics when it comes to insulation savings.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a single, clear-cut answer in regards to how much home insulation can save you. A number of factors come into play—from the size of your house to the type of HVAC systems you have. While you can get answers by talking to an insulation professional, there are some tools online you can use as well.

Insulation Savings

By visiting the CIMA (Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association) website, you can calculate insulation savings. With this tool, you can measure the financial impact of increasing your insulation performance by entering your data into the insulation calculator—the size of your house, the cost of your energy, etc. The calculator will return information about what you would save this year and in the future.

Another tool you can use is the home energy saver tool. It calculates your energy bills using your current rates and information such as where you live, when your home was built, whether you have a basement or not, and more. After filling in your data, you’ll get back your current yearly energy costs and how much you can potentially save with upgrades.

Keep in mind—although these tools can give you general ideas of the insulation savings you could see, they may not be completely accurate. As mentioned, talking to an insulation company is the best way to determine not only how much you can save with insulation but important information like how much insulation your home specifically needs, areas of your home that need the most insulation, etc. This is why we never recommend DIY insulation projects!

What Else Can You Do?

Fortunately, there are many other ways you can help increase your home’s overall energy efficiency in addition to insulation. Two things the team at Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie recommends are:

  • Replace your old garage door with an insulated one. Energy-efficient, insulated garage doors can help reduce your bills and keep your home more comfortable year-round. They also add extra protection from the elements to your garage’s interior.
  • Air seal your home. Ideally, a home should be sealed and insulated. Air sealing and insulation services should complement each other! A home that is properly insulated but not air sealed isn’t as energy-efficient as it could be because air leaks reduce the effectiveness of insulation.
