Energy Savings Made Easy For Homeowners With Owens Corning™ Certified Energy Expert® Professionals

TOLEDO, Ohio, Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) has trained an exclusive group of energy specialists who are now uniquely qualified to help homeowners reduce home energy costs.  Homeowners can now turn to the elite members of Owens Corning™ Certified Energy Expert®  (CEE) program for professional help to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and ultimately save* on energy bills throughout the year.

With a staggering 45 million U.S. homes estimated to be under-insulated according to Harvard School of Public Health,[1] widespread energy loss and increased energy costs are impacting homeowners across the country. Homes built before 1980 are contributing to this problem, as they typically are under-insulated compared to today's energy-efficient attic standards. Since the ceiling or attic of a house can account for up to 20 to 30 percent[2] of a home's heat loss or gain, this means a lot of money is literally going through the roof.

"To help homeowners save money, reduce energy costs and improve the overall comfort and performance of the home, Owens Corning has trained an elite group of energy specialists across the country as part of our Certified Energy Expert® program," said Mike Swift, Vice President, Sales, ICD, Owens Corning. "From new construction to retrofit applications on existing homes, the Owens Corning Certified Energy Expert® (CEE) members are truly qualified building science experts who can help homeowners achieve an energy efficient home with proper insulation and air sealing."  

Steps Today to Start Saving Tomorrow

In this challenging economy, every opportunity to save money counts. Unless a home was specially constructed for energy efficiency, the U.S. Department of Energy office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) notes that homeowners can typically reduce energy bills by adding more insulation.  However, because every home is different, there is no one-size fits all solution to address under-insulated homes.
