Save on Energy Costs with Northstar

Share this post


Energy costs in the Northland can put a significant strain on your bank account, particularly when your home isn’t properly insulated. A well-insulated home often gains a higher market value and at least a break-even return at time of sale. When we insulate homes, most homeowners see a significant drop in their heating and cooling bills (and their discomfort).

There are two main ways that Northstar offers a feasible way to invest in your home: 1) financing and 2) focusing on the areas of your home that offer the biggest financial payoff. 


We offer financing for the work on your home with monthly payments, over a longer period of time. This allows you to begin experiencing the comfort and cost effectiveness of a well insulated home as soon as possible. Another option is to focus on insulation where you need it most. 

Financial Payoff 

There are several areas of a home that have the biggest financial payoff.

Heat rises, so the first place you should insulate is your attic. When your attic is well insulated, it keeps the hot air from leaving through the roof during the winter. If your home doesn’t have an attic, but has high ceilings instead, insulating the ceiling well can be a great solution. Next, you should look into insulating the walls. The high surface area leads to a big impact in terms of energy loss when your home isn’t properly insulated. Whether your walls are solid and insulation needs to be placed outside the wall, or hollow and insulation can be placed in the cavity, Northstar is able to do the job. 

In older homes, a significant challenge to keeping your home comfortable is if the floor isn’t insulated. This requires lifting up the current flooring and placing the insulation underneath. If that isn’t feasible, placing rugs on wood or tile flooring can provide some insulation.

Northstar Insulating is committed to providing the top solution at the best possible price. We work with you to ensure you’re getting every possible value added on your project.
