I researched the types of home insulation - I have R-19 which is good. My window types are slider and casements. Currently, my electric company is running rebates on thermostats, generators and water heaters.

I too decided to do the home insulation badge because of a $9000 bid to insulate when I get a new roof. I was SO happy to learn that I qualify for a rebate on insulation of 30% up to $350. Granted. it's going to be less that 3% of the total project cost but I will take it!!

I have nasty ice damns so it was a very interesting conversation with the insulation people. I can't believe all that they are going to be doing - removing old, sealing floor spaces, spray foaming to name a few. If it doesn't take care of the ice damns I am going to be so disappointed!

Kris, I'm glad the badge helped you to save some money. Any savings is better than no savings. Good luck with your new insulation and roof. I hope they fix your problems.
