A few months ago I shared with you about an energy-efficient item that the Hubs learned about and wanted to try out. Since we were redoing our popcorn ceiling in our master bedroom we decided to pull the trigger and use it on the ceiling and the walls.
The Hubs read about Insuladd in a magazine and was excited to use it.
I couldn’t wait to see how it affected our bills. Today, I am here to give you a three-month update for our house. We pay the average of our bill and its re-evaluated every May. (It either becomes higher or lower depending on how we did) Last year our bill, starting in May 2011, was $155 a month! We live in an old home but YIKES! So the Hubs set out on fixing leaks in windows and doorways. We even tried this window insulation. We probably spent about $100 in supplies to fix draftiness. In May our bill was re-evaluated and our bills were much lower so we now pay $98 and got some moolah back ! In our house the Insuladd is only in one room so we don’t know how much of an impact it had but I can feel a difference. Our room was either really cold or really hot (depending on the season) Our master bedroom feels better and it feels like it holds the AC/Heat in better. I know feeling is subjective so the real proof was on the entire house we did in our friends home.
When the house was bought we found out the energy bill was an average of $140.00. Now, our friend has only been in there two months but those two months have been 102º-106º heat. Her bills have been (give or take a few $) around $87.00 If the average was $140 that means that there were probably higher bills than $140, I am guessing in the heat of the summer and cold of the winter. So far so good. I really think the Insuladd works.
Thanks for reading,
