CertainTeed Insulation has introduced three new online tools to help building professionals better market efficiency improvements to homeowners. The free online tools can be used to access information on rebates and incentives, the amount of insulation needed to provide optimum thermal comfort and energy savings.
CertainTeed’s online tools:
With the Rebate & Incentives Calculator, homeowners input a zip code and instantly receive a list of federal, state and local utility insulation incentives that apply to their area. The tool also provides instructions and any relevant forms associated with the incentive or rebate.
The Calculate Your Energy Savings tool estimates the energy savings associated with specific energy-efficiency improvements. It calculates savings based on zip code, type of fuel used in the home, age of heating and cooling equipment, amount of existing insulation and amount of insulation to be installed.
To help explain the different types of insulation to homeowners, building professionals can use the Insulation Calculator. The calculator helps determine the recommended R-Value based on geographic region and specific area of a home, such as the attic, walls, and basement. It also helps calculate the square footage of the project to determine how much insulation is needed.
