Check out this year’s trends​ and how they compare to prior years.

“Most homes in the United States don’t have enough insulation and have significant air leaks. In fact, if you added up all the leaks, holes and gaps in a typical home’s envelope, it would be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year!”   ~ Energy Star
