Home Improvement on NBC’s Today Show: How Blow-in Insulation can boost a home’s R-value
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.
