Topic: Insulate wall to save heat


A: Insulate your walls and ceilings. This can save 20 to 30 percent of home heating bills and reduce CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions by 140 to 2100 pounds per year. If you live in a colder climate, consider super insulating. That can save 5.5 tons of CO2 per year for gas-heated homes, 8.8 tons per year for oil heat, or 23 tons per year for electric heat. Technically, all of the house will be changed, except for the windows and doors because you can't insulate those.


B: Everguard Home Insulation will install the insulation. The steps are, 1. 2 inch holes are drilled.

2. Holes 3 foot and 6 foot every 16 inches.

3. Material is installed and foam plug installed.

4. Stucco patch floated.

5. Stucco is now ready for primer and paint.

Yes we need to get permission, because our parents might think that it's too much money. They might not even want the insulation. We would also need permission from the landlord if you rented the house.


C:

Ceiling: 2100 feet

Exterior: 1360 feet

Interior: 915 feet

Cost: about $2450

Saving: $1500 per 1-5 years

Fundraiser (How we will raise money): A lot of different things, such as putting money that we already have, baking cookies, making crafts, garage sales, etc.


D: Insulated walls keep your house warm without heaters. It's actually a lot cheaper to get these installed then to buy multiple heaters. It only cost a 1 time payment of about $2,450 with savings of almost $1,500 per year. What a bargain!! Not only does it does it save money, but it also uses up less energy. You can even change the thickness to whatever you want. It works for any house of any size, but the size depends on the money.
