On Wednesday, October 21, home improvement expert, Lou Mandfredini of HouseSmarts™ will appear on NBC’s Today Show during the 8:30 a.m. hour to share some tips with homeowners on how adding insulation to their attics can improve overall energy efficiency and lower energy bills while enabling them to benefit from the federal tax credits. Each week, Lou provides the answers to questions that homeowners have about their homes. Lou is uniquely qualified to do this as a former remodeling contractor and home builder. Lou and his wife are also the owners of an ACE Hardware store in suburban Chicago.

During the segment, Lou will discuss the benefits of adding energy efficient insulation to attics and offer hands-on installation tips. Specifically, Lou will demonstrate how the CertainTeed TrueComfort Blow-in Insulation can be used to boost a home’s R-value.  He will also share the best way to add fiberglass batt insulation to an attic floor. If you haven’t seen any of Lou’s previous home improvement segments, you’ll love how he explains projects and materials in ways that everyone can understand. This is one of the qualities that make Lou so effective.

 

Improving the energy efficiency of your home will help to lower your energy costs and your carbon footprint. If your home was built before 1990, you might want to conduct an energy audit, a careful walk-through of your home to identify any air leaks along the baseboard or edge of the flooring, at junctures of the walls and ceilings, or at electrical box openings and plumbing penetrations.

 

Check your local listings for your local NBC channel and tune in to Lou on The Today Show, Wednesday, October 21st at 8:30 a.m.

 

Lucas Hamilton is Manager, Building Science Applications, for CertainTeed Corporation
