Varieties of Installation We Install
There are several varieties of insulation. Each kind of insulation has its benefits and provides distinct benefits for each location. You will find that insulation can be found in a wide range of prices. All insulation is quantified in units called R-values. The higher the R-value the better the level of resistance to the movement of heat between spaces. You will need to make certain that the kind of insulation you choose will do the job and give you with the degree of comfort you seek.
How Insulation Pays You Back in Illinois
Insulation is pretty much invisible product that can make a significant difference in the quality of your living surroundings. Insulation also has a true payback on your insulation costs. The better the insulation and installation, the faster you will recoup your investment in insulation in terms of lower energy bills. You will be helping the environment by using less energy to heat and cool your home or structure.
How Ventilation Influences Insulation.
The quantity of insulation and the amount of ventilation in a structure needs to be correctly balanced for your home or building to function optimally. Frequently we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been obstructed. Your objective should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system in your home or building. We have the ideal testing methods to figure out if you have any air leaks, clogged vents or other problems that affect the performance of your ventilation and insulation system.

Attic Insulation in Decatur
One of the most essential areas of your home or building to insulate thoroughly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep warm air from seeping into the living areas in the summer. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces seeping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air movement such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a huge place, it is typically one of the first spaces where we improve 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 locations that should be checked for ample insulation. The ideal kind of insulation will minimize moisture and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not chilly and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also discover that spray insulation also helps with pest and rodent control in below grade spaces like basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Decatur, IL
The type of insulation we recommend depends on the level of protection and comfort you need for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blow in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the best insulation to shut out air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical material that expands to fill every void and is water resistant and pest resistant. There are 2 kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall spaces and is resistant to pests and mold. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blown-in fiberglass shreds and has comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal solution. It is a durable insulating choice and is mostly used in unfinished areas of a house or commercial buildings.
Many houses don’t have adequate insulation in their wall cavities. Gradually, batts and loose-fill insulation can sag or become wet and will lose their insulating capacity. We can use various insulation materials to fix this problem including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation material we recommend will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outside.
Decatur Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations where insulation can improve the enjoyment of living areas is the garage. Builders often neglect insulating a garage properly to save money on building expenses. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can come from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home into the garage. To improve your house’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help upgrade your garage insulation.
Uninsulated duct work in the basement, crawl space or up in the attic is a cause of wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your air ducts with foil blankets, spray foam or covering up attic ducts with blown-in insulation. Insulating and sealing your ductwork will make sure that you are not losing heat in the winter and air-conditioned air in the summer and making your hvac system work much harder than it has to.
Insulation For Pipes
Incorrectly insulated hot water pipes are a source of wasted water and wasted energy in Decatur, Illinois.
