Insulation: Depending on the age and type of existing insulation, you may be able to significantly save on energy bills with the help of energy efficient insulation made with foam plastics. First consider consulting a qualified home energy auditor to determine what type of insulation upgrades your home can benefit from. And make sure you look into today’s modern plastic foam insulation products that really can help save energy and money. These materials help prevent unwanted airflow between the interior and exterior of your home to cut down on wasted energy. Windows: New, energy-efficient windows with snug-fitting vinyl plastic frames and insulating panes can significantly reduce energy use for heating and cooling.

Analysts’ estimates typically exclude one-time items.

Comparable sales increased 4.4 percent. “We were able to recover most of the outdoor product sales missed in the first quarter due to unfavorable weather conditions,” said Robert Niblock, chairman, president and CEO.
