Attic Insulation in Cicero
One of the most essential spots of your home or building to insulate correctly is your attic. Insulating an attic properly will keep warm air from seeping into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the winter. 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 generally one of the first spaces where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also benefit because your hvac system will not need 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 ample insulation. The right type of insulation will minimize moisture and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation in between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not freezing and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray foam insulation also can help with pest and rodent control in below grade spaces such as basements.
Varieties Of Insulation Available in Cicero, IL
The type of insulation we recommend depends on the level of protection and comfort you prefer for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blown in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to seal out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical material that spreads out to fill every crack and is waterproof and pest resistant. There are 2 kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blow-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is manufactured from recycled materials. 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 scraps and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a very cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal solution. It is a durable insulating selection and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of a house or business buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall cavities. In time, batts and loose-fill insulation can sag or get soaked and lose their insulating capacity. We can use different insulation materials to correct this problem including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation product we recommend will depend on how accessible the walls are from the outdoors.
Cicero Garage Insulation.
One of the many spots where insulation can improve the comfort of living spaces is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage adequately to save on building expenses. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can stem from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house to the garage. To improve your house’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 reason for lost energy and wasted money. We can insulate your air ducts with insulated blankets, spray foam or burying attic ductwork with blown in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your duct work will ensure that you are not losing heat in the wintertime and air-conditioned air in the summer months and making your hvac system work harder than it should.
