How does your attic measure up?

According to ENERGY STAR®, 9 out of 10 homes in the U.S. are under-insulated. To see if you’re ready for cooler winter temperatures, use the following steps to check your insulation levels. Then, you can earn up to $700 in combined air sealing and insulation rebates.

Diagram of how to measure insulationGrab some gloves, a ruler and a flashlight, head upstairs and check your attic insulation:

  • Visual check. Scan your attic to see if the insulation is level with or below the floor joists. If it is, chances are you need more insulation.
  • Measure up. Using a ruler or measuring tape, measure the depth of your insulation. 16”-18” of insulation depth is typically recommended for northern climates.

If your insulation needs an update, our rebates can help. We offer attic insulation rebates for 75% of the cost (up to $500 for electric heat and up to $200 for non-electric heat).

Before you insulate, consider updating your air sealing to improve energy efficiency and help prevent moisture and mold. We offer an additional rebate of up to $200 for air sealing, which can improve efficiency by up to 20%.

Plus, if you’re a PPL Electric customer, you can earn up to $350 in bonus rebates when pairing an attic insulation upgrade with other qualifying measures. Learn more on our Comprehensive Retrofit Bonus page.
