Stay cozy with insulated carpets

baby crawls on plush carpetIt’s been estimated uninsulated floors can lose up to 15% of the heat in a room. In a harsh Michigan winter, that energy loss hits wallets hard. Using energy-efficient, thermal-insulated carpeting is an easy way to retain much of the heat usually wasted through bare floors in the winter (as well as cool air in the summer).

One of the most-important places to insulate carpeting is in the bedroom. If you must leave the cozy cocoon of your bed in the morning, make sure you're not stepping onto a frosty-cold floor. We can all appreciate plush-insulated carpeting for their cost-saving comfort, and for making carpeting feel thicker and stay more durable.

Our carpet design consultants can help match you with the perfect style that still increases the R-value (a measure of thermal resistance and insulation level) of your home in attractive designs you'll love.
