90% of American homes are under-insulated, According to Energy Star.*

Even if your home was insulated correctly when it was built, insulation tends to settle over time, getting thinner and far less effective. When it fails, it can cause multiple problems in your home. Common signs include high energy bills, drafts, animal infestations, ice dams, big indoor temperature fluctuations and uneven temperatures.
Upgrading insulation is one of the top ways to cut energy bills and boost your home comfort.
Benefits of new insulation:
- Lower utility bills
- Healthier indoor environment
- Greater home comfort
- Lower environmental impact
- Less indoor noise
- Reduced use of heating and cooling equipment
We can determine if your insulation needs to be replaced and which areas are the highest priority. In some cases, incentives can save you money on this home performance upgrade.
A continuous layer of insulation
Because this insulation can go where other types of insulation can't reach, it is very effective in
sealing cracks and insulating around irregularly shaped building elements. Spray foam creates a continuous layer of insulation for even temperatures throughout your home.
Even little gaps in insulation may have a huge impact on your home's envelope and comfort. Our attention to detail eliminates such gaps, improving your home's comfort for many years to come.
Green, quiet, and effective
We often use cellulose insulation around building elements such as pipes and wiring. This non-
toxic insulation also dampens noise betweens floors and walls, for a quieter home.
Cellulose insulation contains recycled paper, making this a green home product. It is also a good choice in Northern Illinois, because it is both durable and resistant to mold growth, for healthier indoor air.
Keep the outside air out
Most houses have significant leaks, and according to ENERGY STAR, all the leaks, gaps and holes in an average home's building envelope are equivalent to having a
window open every day of the year. Imagine all the energy that may be leaking out of your home!
Outside air can leak into your home through windows, doors, outside walls, and other openings. Leaks waste energy, raise your energy bills, and degrade home comfort. A well-sealed and insulated home has significantly lower energy bills and a lower environmental impact.
