Steps to Inspect & Evaluate Home Insulation:

  1. Turn off the electrical power to your electrical outlets.
  2. Remove the cover to your electrical outlet and shine a flashlight into the crack around the outlet box.  From here, you should be able to determine if there is insulation behind the outlet (and therefore, in the walls).
  3. If you can, pull out a small amount of insulation.  This will help you determine the kind of insulation that you currently have in the walls of your home.
  4. Check the outlets in various rooms around your home, including any on the floors.  While you may have insulation in one room of your home, you may be missing it in another.  Just remember to make sure that the electrical power is off first!

Staggering Energy Reduction
"The 40% reduction in usage looked suspiciously high even though the numbers have been double and triple checked - the annual variations are quite staggering!"

Great Results
"We used Good Life for foam insulation about 4 years ago with great results. An amazing difference, especially in the corner rooms of our house. We also did the energy audit and received a rebate."
