Now it’s a good time to get that insulation project done, walls and attic, to keep your house warmer during the coming winter and save on your heating bill.
The Gas Company is offering a rebate until December 31 of 15-cent per square foot. The federal government will give you a 30% tax credit (up to $ 1,500) on the cost of energy-efficient windows, doors, roofing, wall and attic insulation, furnaces, air-conditioning systems and heat pumps.
We were hesitant to break up the walls of our home, but we did it and already we feel warmer at night. All you need is to paint over the patched up holes.
You may look up the various processes, the materials used (in our case blown cellulose) and other choices on these websites.

They also offer rebates on Energy Star qualified appliances: cloth washers, dishwashers and water heaters.
