Consider insulation as a long-term investment


As I conduct energy audits on hundreds of homes of all ages, I am often left amazed at how we keep living as if we don’t mind — or we just have to put up with — high energy bills and uncomfortable homes. We absolutely don’t. We just have to get our priorities straight and invest in our properties. We can then use the savings for something else, or use them to finance the work so we can protect ourselves and our family against next winter and the many cold winters to come after that.
