Attic Insulation in Evanston
One of the most important locations of your home or building to insulate thoroughly is your attic. Insulating an attic properly will keep heated air from leaking into the living areas in the summertime. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces escaping 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 huge place, it is typically one of the first spaces where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also gain 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 inspected for adequate insulation. The ideal form of insulation will reduce dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will make sure that your floors are not cold and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray insulation also can help with pest and rodent control in below grade spaces like basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Evanston, IL
The kind of insulation we suggest is dependent on the level of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blown in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray insulation is the best insulation to seal out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical substance that expands to fill every opening and is water resistant 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 spaces and is resistant to pests and mold. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blow in fiberglass scraps and has comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a very cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is a perfect solution. It is a long lasting insulating choice and is primarily installed in unfinished areas of the home or commercial buildings.
Many properties don’t have adequate insulation in their wall spaces. Gradually, batts and loose fill insulation can sag or become soaked and will lose insulating ability. We can use different insulation materials to fix this issue including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation material we suggest will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outside.
Evanston Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations where insulation can improve the enjoyment of living rooms is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage correctly to save on building expenses. Energy loss from an inadequately insulated garage can stem from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house into the garage. To boost your house’s comfort and efficiency, phone us to help you 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 duct work with insulated blankets, spray foam or burying attic ducts with blown in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your ducts will ensure that you are not losing heat in the cold months and air-conditioned air in the summer and making your hvac system work much harder than it should.
Improperly insulated water pipes are a cause of wasted water and wasted energy in Evanston, Illinois.
