Attic Insulation in Elgin
One of the most essential locations of your home or building to insulate correctly is your attic. Insulating an attic correctly will keep warm air from leaking into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the wintertime. Air movement such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a big area, it is typically one of the first areas where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also benefit 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 locations that should be inspected for ample insulation. The ideal form 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 cool spots in your living areas. You will also discover that spray foam insulation also helps with pest and rodent control in underground spaces like basements.
Kinds Of Insulation Available in Elgin, IL
The variety of insulation we recommend depends on the level of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blown in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to seal off air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical compound that spreads out to fill every gap and is water-proof and insect 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 spaces 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 very cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal answer. It is a durable 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 cavities. Over time, batts and loose-fill insulation can droop or become soaked and lose their insulating ability. We can easily use various insulation materials to correct this issue including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The kind of insulation product we suggest will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outdoors.
Elgin Garage Insulation.
One of the many spots where insulation can enhance the comfort of living areas is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage properly to save on building costs. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can originate from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house to the garage. To boost your home’s comfort and efficiency, phone us to help upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Air Ducts
Uninsulated air ducts in the basement, crawl space or attic is a reason for lost energy and wasted money. We can insulate your duct work with insulated blankets, spray foam or covering up attic ductwork with blow-in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your ducts will ensure that you are not losing heat in the cold months and cooled air in the summer months and making your hvac system work much harder than it needs to.
