Check out the feature story I wrote about a wonderful deep energy retrofit project that took place just last year in Portland, Maine.
The article is chock full of great information and local resources to help you take back control of your homes energy use.
In the immortal words of Brad Hamilton, “Learn it. Know it. Live it.” (or move South)
Instead of a curse, think of Ice Dams as a sign telling you that you have been silently, invisibly, constantly losing heat (and money) in your house for as long as you have lived there.
Just because the conditions may have changed this year and its the ‘first time’ you’ve had ice dams, it does NOT mean that you haven’t been losing money through your attic and roof in the past…you’ve just never been able to ‘see’ it before.
I’m no ‘ambulance chaser’ but if I owned an insulation company I’d be cruising neighborhoods taking pics and writing down addresses for a VERY personalized direct mail and phone call follow up later this spring. ∞
