winter weatherization

November 8, 2010

It’s that time of year again.  Winter is fast approaching and with frost on the ground insulating is making its way to the top of everyone’s to-do list.  But where do you start?  I recently revisited some helpful sites that outline a step-by-step approach to weatherization.  My favorite site so far is Sierra Club’s Green Home.  The Learn More section offers a serious overview of how to insulate properly.  Green Home Guide also offers a nice side-by-side comparison to the various types of alternative, healthy insulation.  Lastly, you might find the Department of Energy’s fact sheet useful.

Some products you might want to consider are Knauff, Bonded Logic, Roxul and Cocoon.  These products pride themselves on being healthier alternatives to the pink stuff.  Regardless of which brand or style you choose the important thing is to do it now, so you can enjoy your space and the savings this winter.
