Making your home more energy-efficient can reap some big dividends through lower energy bills and increased comfort. For example, having the right amount of insulation can help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. In addition to the energy savings, there are many ways for Alabama homeowners to save even more by performing needed upgrades that qualify for roof energy rebates.
The Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy keeps an updated list of the various rebates and incentives available to home and business owners by state. Since energy programs tend to fluctuate, it is best to always check with local authorities to learn the latest opportunities that can be taken advantage of. A wide variety of upgrades may be covered, including:
- Air Sealing
- Attic Insulation
- Duct Sealing
- Wall Insulation
- Windows and doors

Using the right insulation
A big part of making your home more energy-efficient is not only having enough insulation, but making sure it’s the proper type and is correctly installed. Roof ventilation, attic insulation, and attic cross-insulation working together for optimal efficiency.
In the humid South, we’ve found that AttiCat® Expanding Blown-In Insulation is the ideal product for effectively increasing your home’s energy-efficiency. We use a large machine to blow it into your attic, taking care to fill the gaps. It provides a tighter, more efficient solution than rolls or bats of insulation, reducing airflow in your attic and also reducing noise transmission. AttiCat maintains its form over time, ensuring that your home will be more energy-efficient for years to come.
