Rule Your Attic Winter 2020
St. James, NY, November 16th 2020 – In 9 out of 10 homes across America, low levels of insulation are causing comfort problems and wasting homeowners’ money with high energy bills.* To help homeowners take control over high utility bills this heating season, Triple H Insulation, Heating & Cooling is teaming up with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program to launch its Rule Your Attic! campaign.
Now in its third year, Rule Your Attic! is a multi-media, consumer-focused outreach campaign that utilizes the reach of social media to help homeowners understand the benefits of sealing and insulating their attics and encouraging action, either through DIY projects or by working with a contractor. ENERGY STAR and Triple H are providing homeowners with the tools and resources they need to properly seal and insulate their homes.
“Most homeowners don’t realize how much money they are throwing away over something that has such a simple solution,” said Doug Anderson, Project Manager of the ENERGY STAR Seal and Insulate team. “Sealing air leaks and adding insulation to recommended levels in the attic or basement (or crawlspace) can save homeowners up to 11% on their annual utility bills…even more if you live in a Northern climate.”
Homeowners can participate in the campaign by:
- Measure: Taking that first step and going into their attic to measure the insulation levels.
- Get Solutions: Following the #RuleYourAttic hashtag or visiting www.energystar.gov/ruleyourattic to get expert advice, do-it-yourself tips, and suggestions for working with a contractor. They can also post photos of their attic insulation levels on Facebook and Twitter using #RuleYourAttic for personalized advice from EPA experts.
- Fix and Save: Taking action to improve their attic by making improvements themselves or hiring a contractor.
The campaign kicks off November 16th.
Throughout the campaign, EPA will share tips, graphics, and “how-to” videos on the ENERGY STAR Facebook and Twitter accounts to help homeowners maximize the energy efficiency of their home by sealing and insulating their home’s attic. In addition, homeowners who post photos of their attic insulation to social media will receive customized advice. This feedback will encourage homeowners to make a decision about next steps—whether that’s adding more insulation themselves, shopping for materials and products, or hiring a contractor.
