Insulation Information for Homeowners

NOW is the time to insulate!
By upgrading the insulation in your home, you may be able to get money back. The U.S. Federal Government is offering a tax credit of up to $500 (10% of the material cost) for homeowners who make certain energy efficiency upgrades in their home, like adding insulation. This tax credit applies to your principal residence, and the work must be completed by December 31, 2020. Don’t miss out on this chance to get money back for insulating your home. Please contact us if you have any questions about how you can take advantage of this unique opportunity.
Considering a Home Energy Assessment?
Insulation is a piece of the home performance puzzle. We will evaluate your home and can perform a home energy assessment to form a course of action. We are not just insulators; we are a certified home performance contractor. The experts at Reilly Insulation are Building Performance Institute Certified, which means we have spent classroom hours learning how the home performs, not just the insulation.
To perform an assessment, we will perform blower door testing. This will de-pressurize your home, thus pulling air from your home outside. We can measure the “draftiness” of the home and identify where air sealing is critical. We can test available appliances for safety. Then, we can recommend steps toward improving your home’s efficiency.
