When you reach for the thermostat, do you hesitate by asking yourself, “How high are my energy bills going to get this time?” Many of us would like to make our homes more energy-efficient. However, it is easy to get overwhelmed about where to start. Many times, it’s the simplest and most cost-effective method that is often overlooked.
Did you know inadequately insulated attics account for over 40% of home energy loss? What if we could tell you that you could lower your utility expenses by as much as 50%? Standard building practices over the last 30 years have used on average only 10 to 12 inches of attic insulation while the Department of Energy recommends an attic insulation depth of 15 to 25 inches for the Kansas City area, meaning the majority of homes in our area do not even have the minimum recommended amount of insulation. Adding an additional 10 to 15 inches is very inexpensive, yet the cost savings are notable. Inferior insulation in your attic causes major heat loss through the roof, acounting for 40% of your home’s energy loss. Utility savings pay for the insulation install in six months or less!

A FreshStart Story: Reduced Energy Bills by Over 50%
Note from a client in Kansas City, MO: We own large custom home, almost 4,000 square feet, on a property with two and a half acres. Our total utility expenses reached over $800 per month during the peak of the winter and summer seasons. The former owners insulated the attic a few years ago. So, initially, we did not consider that insulation would need to be addressed. Due to your inspection, we learned our attic only had 12 inches of insulation. Also, there were large bare spots that had not been covered correctly.
In addition to adding insulation, you addressed our other concerns with mold damage at the same time. You were able to improve airflow, by adding additional soffit vents. Also, we learned so much about the airflow of our attic. After Fresh Start completed our insulation project, our utility bills never reached over $400 per month…more than a 50% reduction! Amazing! The best services all around!
