Reach Barrier 3139 Reflective Air² Attic Ladder Insulation Kit
Don't allow cool air or heat to escape from your home: Even if your attic is well insulated, the folding ladder that provides access to your attic can still be causing tremendous cooling & heat loss. These ladders generally offer only a thin piece of plywood between your living space and the excessive heat or cold in your attic. Using thermal imaging it is not unusual to record hot air temperatures of 110°F or more leaking in around these ladder units in the heat of summer. A Reach Attic Ladder Insulation Kit can prevent this from happening easily and inexpensively.

Reach Barrier 3016 Water Heater Insulation Kit & Install Information
Why install a Reach Barrier Water Heater Insulation Kit™? Water heating can account for 14%--25% of the energy consumed in your home. You can reduce your monthly water heating bills by using some energy-efficient water heating strategies. Unless your water heater's storage tank already has a high R-value of insulation (at least R-24), adding insulation to it can reduce standby heat losses by 25%--45%. This will save you around 4%--9% in water heating costs. If you don't know your water heater tank's R-value, touch it! No matter where your tank is located - garage, attic or house - a tank that's warm to the touch needs a Reach Barrier™ Water Insulation Kit!

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 extended the nonbusiness energy property tax credit, section 25C in the tax code, by one year. It also largely reverted it to the structure as it existed prior to the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), with some tighter requirements for improvements to qualify. This new credit structure applies to improvements made in 2011; those made in 2010 are still subject to the old credit's requirements and values.

You can save around 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills by simply turning your thermostat back 10°–15° for eight hours. You can do this automatically without sacrificing comfort by installing an automatic setback or programmable thermostat.

In the summer, you can follow the same strategy with central air conditioning, too, by keeping your house warmer than normal when you are away, and lowering the thermostatsetting to 78°F (26°C) only when you are at home and need cooling. Although thermostats can be adjusted manually, programmable thermostats will avoid any discomfort by returning temperatures to normal as you wake or return home.
