The type of insulation you choose to insulate your home is one of the most important things any homeowner can do to reduce overall energy consumption and save money.
Rainer, OR (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
Oregon Shepherd, a leading sheep wool insulation company located in Oregon, has published a home insulation guide to help homeowners looking to improve or upgrade their home insulation. The guide titled "12 Reasons to Choose Natural Wool Insulation" provides critical information that consumers will find useful when selecting alternative insulation products or blown-in insulation.
According to Margaret Magruder, co-owner at Oregon Shepherd, "The type of insulation you choose to insulate your home is one of the most important things any homeowner can do to reduce overall energy consumption and save money."
"Selecting the right type of insulation can be a difficult and often times confusing process – so many types of insulation and materials to choose from. Trying to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer is and should be the goal when choosing insulation," continued Magruder. "The reason why we release this Alternative Insulation Materials Guide is to help homeowners understand why natural wool insulation may be their best choice."
"Natural Wool Insulation is a renewable resource and has long offered a good value/return on investment for homeowners. This is because of its ease of installation, proven performance, and energy savings return on investment. In addition, natural wool insulation reduces heating and cooling costs by eliminating voids and air pockets common with other insulation materials," said Magruder.
Oregon Shepherd has been getting hundreds of questions a month from homeowners and contractors ever since they officially introduced its line of natural insulation products in 2010. "Based on the discussions we’ve had with hundreds of homeowners, we decided the best way to reach as many people as possible was to publish this free helpful guide," said Magruder. The more homeowners read about the benefits of sheep wool insulation, the more they like and agree with the benefits it offers.
