Jodi Marks: One of the ways to make your home energy efficient is to have good insulation in your attic and in your crawl space and in your basement. And if it’s not, you need to replace it.

Now, I’m over here in the insulation aisle. And I’m standing in front of the Owens Corning display, because I want to talk to you about their EcoTouch fiberglass insulation. Well, why do they call it this?

Well, the “eco” part stands for it’s environmentally friendly. Why? Well, first of all there’s no formaldehyde. Secondly, it comes with the GREENGUARD Certification. Which means it’s got good in-house air quality. Another thing, it comes from 50% recycled material, 30% of which is made of post-consumer material.

Now, what does the “touch” mean? The “touch” means that it’s soft and the fiberglass is refined so nicely that it’s less of a skin irritant when you put it in place. It’s very easy to install, and again if you want to reduce your power bills year after year just make sure you got good insulation.
