Attic Insulation in Oak Lawn
One of the most essential locations of your home or building to insulate properly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep hot 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 winter. Air flow such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a big area, it is generally one of the first spaces where we improve 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 areas that should be inspected for adequate insulation. The right type of insulation will reduce 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 cold and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray insulation also helps with insect and rodent control in underground spaces like basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Oak Lawn, IL
The kind of insulation we recommend is dependent on the level of protection and comfort you need for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blown-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray insulation is the most effective insulation to shut out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical material that spreads out to fill every crack and is waterproof and insect resistant. There are two varieties, 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 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 very cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is a perfect answer. It is a durable insulating selection and is primarily installed in unfinished areas of the home or commercial buildings.
Many properties don’t have enough insulation in their wall cavities. Over time, batts and loose fill insulation can droop or get wet and lose their insulating ability. We can use different insulation materials to correct this problem including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation material we suggest will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the exterior.
Oak Lawn Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations 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 come from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house to the garage. To improve your house’s comfort and efficiency, phone us to help upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Air Ducts
Uninsulated ducts in the basement, crawl space or attic is a reason for wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your ducts with foil blankets, spray foam or covering up attic ductwork with blown-in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your ductwork 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 much harder than it should.
