Carefully Evaluate Promised Energy Savings
on Thursday, June 15, 2017
Recently, many CFU customers received a postcard mailing inviting them to a dinner to learn about how to save 40% each month on their utility bills.
This mailing is not from Cedar Falls Utilities, and the promised energy improvements should be evaluated carefully.
It is likely that the company that sent the mailing is promoting attic radiant barriers. Be wary of any large savings on your utility bill promised with the installation of a radiant barrier. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, radiant barriers are most effective in hot, sunny climates to keep homes cool. In climates like ours, they are much less effective and do not offer significant energy savings.
The most cost effective change you can make at your home is add attic insulation. For more information about available rebates, call CFU Energy Services at 266-1761.
