Now is a great time to sell the benefits of an insulation upgrade to potential customers before the summer heat hits. Planning ahead for an insulation retrofit will ensure that your customer is saving on utility costs, as insulation works to prevent both heat loss and heat gain in the building. During the summer months, insulation acts as a buffer between hot outside air and works to prevent radiant heat and hot air from entering the building.
Energy Trust provides an array of incentives for existing buildings, including incentives for attic, roof, wall and pipe insulation. Businesses can earn between $0.50 to $1.00 per square foot for roof, attic and wall insulation and between $4.00 to $12.00 per linear foot for pipe insulation.
