A green home is a healthy home. If you are interested in a having a more environmentally-friendly home, Martin Amado, Home Interior Design expert and HGTV Designer has a few "green ideas" that you can implement today that will not only help create a healthier environment, but also help fight against global warming. "There is an estimated 60 million American homes with under-insulated attics. With the proper insulation, homeowners can help reduce their energy bills by as much as 20 percent. A simple test to know if you need better insulation can be done just be going up to your attic. If you can see your wood beams on your attic floor, you probably need to add more insulation. The Department of Energy recommends an average R-value of 49 -- that translates to a minimum of 15.5 inches of fiberglass batt insulation or 18 inches of blown insulation. The best insulation for your home is the pink insulation from Owens Corning, which contains 35% recycled content. For more information on how to properly insulate your attic and your home and to save energy, go to www.InsulateYourAtticNow.com. The site features a step by step installation guide and details about where to buy it in your area. To view Multimedia News Release, go to http://www.prnewswire.com/mnr/greenefficienthome/32521/
