Rule Your Attic This Fall

Did you know that 90 percent of American homes are under-insulated? This means that nine out of 10 U.S. homeowners are wasting money on their energy bills. ENERGY STAR® wants you to take action today to stop wasting energy, save money, increase your home's comfort, and reduce the pollution that contributes to climate change.

Proper attic insulation is vital for maximum comfort in any home or apartment space. Without the right amount of insulation, properly installed, all of your home’s heated or cooled air could be escaping. This drives your HVAC costs through the roof, literally.

ENERGY STAR wants to help! They have released a ‘Rule Your Attic!’ video series in order to educate homeowners about the importance of proper insulation, debunk the mysteries swirling around your attic and empower you to take total control of your home’s heating and cooling processes.

For easy monitoring methods, tricks and insightful how-to videos that you can do yourself, check out the ENERGY STAR playlist at
