Adding Insulation Increases Energy Efficiency

Adding insulation to your home can reduce heating and cooling costs. Homes built after 1982 are required to have R-19 insulation, which is the level we recommend. However, if your home was built before 1982, you may benefit from adding insulation. Installing additional insulation:

  • Keeps unwanted heat out
  • Reduces the workload of your cooling system
  • Can result in additional savings on your electric bill

Do I Need to Add Insulation?

The best way to determine if your insulation is at the recommended level is by age.

To be certain that you need to add insulation, go into your attic with a ruler and measure the depth of the insulation at the attic entry. Remember to use safety precautions when climbing the ladder. Compare your measurements using the chart below to determine if additional insulation is needed.



An FPL Energy Expert can measure your home's insulation levels and determine if you're eligible for a rebate, and if so, what that amount will be.
