Insulation - Superinsulation (or is it Super Insulation?)
You can never have enough insulation!!!!
Well..... if you're building a new building. After you surpass superinsulation the payback periods for the next inch do become unjustifable. However, fiberglass, glass wool and cellulose insulation are so inexpesnive it's a cheap ego stroke! Pile it on, every bit will save energy, droping your building energy use to near zero (and it's cheaper than a Photovoltaic system) and shout it from the rooftops.
If you are retrofitting and adding to any reasonable existing insulation, it's pretty hard to get a justifiable payback period, unless it's do it yourself or you've got a multi-generational house to pass on to the little ones.
Here's my take when insulation payback become debatable, or any energy efficency or alternative energy initiative -- Use the money to save energy elsewhere! The easiest way is to donate the money (or insulation) to Habitat for the Humanities to super insulate a Habitat for Humanities project. The math is too long, but you could double your energy savings.
Tons of info and everyone taking the time and effort to maintain a website promotoing Green Builidng and Sustainability need to see the hits, need to see the interest!
I don’t check for broken links (Takes time, and this site doesn’t generate income to support it), so if any of the links above don’t work, then see below, I’ve probably downloaded and printed out what impressed me.
