Insulation is one of the best investments a homeowner can make. By installing proper insulation at least R-30 in the ceilings, R-13 in the walls and R-11 in the floor homeowners can reduce the transfer of hot or cool air from inside the home to the outside. In cooler climates, insulation standards up to r-200 codes will significantly reduce heating and cooling needs.
