Insulate to the Max

Insulate to the Max

Many homes in Milton were built before 1970. If you live in one of these older homes, the insulation in your walls may not meet modern energy efficiency standards. An older home probably has 250% more air leakage than a home built today. That is a lot of cold air sweeping into your home making it uncomfortable and expensive to heat.

Insulation and air sealing work hand in hand to save energy, money, and make homes more comfortable. Air sealing is usually the first step—eliminating leakage points in your home, like attics, basements, and between joists. You can get 75-100% discounts on approved insulation and air sealing improvements through the Mass Save program.

Benefits of insulation and air sealing improvements include:

  • Lowering heating and cooling costs by up to 20 percent
  • Decreasing drafts to improve comfort and humidity all year long
  • Minimizing outside noise for a quieter, more peaceful environment
  • Reducing the chance of ice dams—protecting your home from potential damage

The Sponsors of Mass Save also offer no-cost insulation and air sealing upgrades to income-eligible residents
