What Home Insulation is Right for Me?
Ottawa residences are all looking to make a huge difference in home energy bills each winter. For many, this means installing energy efficient light bulbs. While that smaller effort can be beneficial, if you live in a draft home, having well insulated and properly ventilated house can both save money and add comfort. Most homes already have insulation, but homes with moisture in the basement or poor ventilation often have failing insulation.

- High heating costs
- Uneven heating levels within building
- Mold growing on walls
Insulation in the summer
