Proper attic insulation is essential to increasing your comfort and decreasing the electric bill. A minimum insulation rating of R-38 (or 13.5 inches) is recommended.
Over time, insulation will degrade and settle, making it less effective. If it’s time to upgrade your home’s insulation, DREMC may be able to help with a $250 attic insulation rebate when members enroll in the EnergyRight program and use a contractor listed in TVA’s Quality Contractor Network.
To begin, register your home with the TVA EnergyRight program. Contact DREMC’s Residential Energy Advisor, Pat Garrett, at 931-680-5886 for more information.
