Types of Installation We Can Install For You
There are several kinds of insulation. Each type of insulation has its purpose and provides distinct advantages for each application. You will discover that insulation comes in a wide range of prices. All insulation is quantified in units called R-values. The higher the R-value the greater the level of resistance to the movement of heat between spaces. You will want to make certain that the kind of insulation you choose will do the job and provide you with the degree of comfort you seek.
How Insulation Pays You Back in Illinois
Insulation is a never often seen product that can make a huge difference in the quality of your living environment. Insulation also has a real payback on your insulation investment. The better the insulation and installation, the quicker you will recoup your investment in insulation in terms of reduced energy bills. You will be helping the environment by using fewer resources to heat and cool your home or building.
How Ventilation Influences Insulation.
The quantity of insulation and the quantity of ventilation in a structure should be efficiently balanced for your house or building to function optimally. Too often we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been clogged. Your aim should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system in your home or building. We have the right testing procedures to determine if you have any air leaks, blocked vents or other imbalances that affect the performance of your ventilation and insulation system.

Attic Insulation in Chicago
One of the most essential areas of your home or building to insulate correctly is your attic. Insulating an attic properly will keep heated air from seeping into the living areas in the summertime. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces seeping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air flow such as these is the cause of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a massive area, it is typically one of the first areas where we improve the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also gain because your hvac system will not have to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are two areas that should be checked for adequate insulation. The ideal type of insulation will minimize dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation in between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will make sure that your floors are not freezing and there are no cool spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray insulation also helps with pest and rodent control in underground spaces like basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Chicago, IL
The variety of insulation we recommend depends on the degree of coverage and comfort you prefer for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blow-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to shut out air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical compound that spreads out to fill every crack and is waterproof and pest resistant. There are 2 varieties, closed cell and open cell.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is manufactured from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall cavities and is resistant to pests and mold and mildew. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is blown in fiberglass shreds and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal answer. It is a long lasting insulating selection and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of a house or commercial buildings.
Many properties don’t have enough insulation in their wall spaces. In time, batts and loose-fill insulation can droop or become soaked and lose their insulating capacity. We can use different insulation materials to correct this issue including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation product we recommend will depend on how accessible the walls are from the outdoors.
Chicago Garage Insulation.
One of the many spots where insulation can improve the comfort of living areas is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage adequately to save money on building expenses. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can stem from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home into the garage. To boost your home’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help you upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Air Ducts
Uninsulated duct work in the basement, crawl space or attic is a cause of wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your duct work with foil blankets, spray foam or burying attic ducts with blown in insulation. Insulating and sealing your duct work will ensure that you are not losing heat in the winter and air-conditioned air in the summer and making your hvac system work harder than it has to.
Improperly insulated hot water pipes are a cause of wasted water and wasted energy in Chicago, Illinois. You will wait much longer for hot water to reach your faucets if your pipes are not insulated the right way.
