Insulation for High Altitude Homes:

We insulated a rural mountain home in an area where it freezes at night for just ~ $35.00.   The medical clinic in the village of Nueva Santa Catarina Ixtahuacan reported that the primary cause of disease and death in people over 45 was pulmonary illness due to the persistent low temperatures at night.  Our insulation was very inexpensive and in our tests it works as good as, or better than fiberglass!
