Snuggy Blanket For Farm Homes
Latest new energy saver for farm homes is the "Home Snuggy", a removable insulation blanket that you wrap around the exterior foundation to prevent heat loss during the winter months.
"Heat loss accounts for 10 to 25% of the total annual heating cost in most homes," says Ken Schmidt, president of High Croft, LeSeur, Minn., manufacturer and marketer of the new concept in home insulation.
The 6-in. thick blanket, made of fiberglass, has an insulation value of R19. The insulation is covered with 5 mil, ultra-violet inhibiting white plastic.
Individual blankets come in 20-ft. rolls and in a 24-in. width (30-in.width will be available soon). Each 20-ft. "Snuggy" comes with 10 fiberglass pointed stakes which hold the blanket in place against the foundation ù without requiring any nails, staples or lath to mar the siding. When winter's over, you remove the stakes and blankets, and store them for reuse.
"The æSnuggy' is also great for insulating around mobile homes and livestock buildings," says Schmidt.
Sells for $3.25 per running foot.
