April 22nd is the official designated day to inspire awareness of our appreciation of the environment as Earth Day. I thought I would share with you something I decided to do as a homeowner to save energy and at the same time get 30% of the energy-efficient cost as a tax credit next year up to $1500.
Not bad while also anticipating a reduction in my SMUD and PG & E costs. Now, let me share with you what I did…but first take a look at the difference in what most of us have as insulation in our attic and the result from installing radiant shield barrier.
Here is another test of all the heat coming in through my sky light. Heat coming in means my air conditioner works harder = $ going right out the sky light.
I’ll save you from looking at how heat is coming in through each one of my ceiling fans, as well but trust me…it is. The next video is what I am having put into my attic, reflective technology shield. If it’s what this video says it is, I think I am doing my part to help use less energy while cutting down on my energy bills, getting a tax credit and being more comfortable in my own home.
What are you doing to be “green?”
Can you think of something you could do to increase the value of your home and be green at the same time? It’s nice when you can be “green,” save money and make money all at the same time.
