Save Up to $1,000 When You Add Insulation
New Mexico Gas Company offers rebates up to $1,000 when you have a participating contractor add insulation to your home’s attic or roof and crawl space.
Was your home built before 1990?
If so, you probably need insulation. Homes built before 1990 have an average of 4–6 inches of insulation, while newer homes have 12–18 inches of insulation.
Benefits of Upgrading Your Home’s Insulation
Properly sealing and insulating your home can help you keep your comfort up and your energy costs down. You’ll reduce outdoor noise, control humidity, and prevent pollen, dust and insects from entering your home, plus:
Save Energy and Money

Ways to Add Insulation to Your Flat Roof
When you are having roof work done, your participating contractor can install insulation by:
Blowing in insulation
Create access holes by removing sections of the roof deck, blow insulation into the roof cavity, then seal the roof and complete work.
Adding rigid or spray foam
Convert the roof cavity or attic space into an unvented, conditioned space by sealing the exterior parapet vents and adding qualifying insulation. Describe the work on the invoice.
