Here are some options to get you started in your quest for a large economical home.
One of the biggest keys to fighting increased energy costs is to have the home that is properly insulated. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to tell exactly how insulated the home is until after the first utility bill arrives. If the bill seems a little high for the estimated space of the house, the culprit may be found in the insulation, or lack thereof of the building. Older homes tend to have less insulation than newer homes and larger old homes can be quite difficult to heat and cool. Inadequate of nonexistent insulation will result in higher utility bills.
The solution is to simply add in the insulation needed to the space. This can be accomplished by old fashioned insulation installation where the room practically has to be gutted to put the insolation in, but there is an alternative to this option. Blown insulation is a much more efficient way to insulate a home. The procedure is often less invasive than traditional insulation and process enables the insulation to reach the farthest corners of the home. Insulating the floor, walls, and attic is the way to go to reduce high energy costs.
