So tomorrow I have a company coming to talk about improving my "home comfort". In my home inspection I was told I have only like 5" or 6" of cellulose in the attic. Looks like for NY it should be 15"-19". So talking with this company they want to come look at stuff. I told the lady I was talking to that my interest was in getting the attic up to par. So she said attic insulating runs about $8000.
So my question is what can I expect to save in heating cost by doing so? I'm thinking 20% at best. I think that might even be high. So if I burn 5 ton of coal per year I might save 1 ton per. So right now I'm paying $285 per ton.
$8000 divided by 285 equals 28 years.
Seems like I bad investment. How will they justify it?
