Fall is on its way, and the chilly Illinois weather will be affecting homeowners in and around Frankfort and Decatur sooner than later. While many people focus on staying warm and comfortable during the seasonal transition, it’s also worth your time to consider ways in which to increase energy efficiency. Hint: It doesn’t need to be as hard or expensive as you might think.
Year after year during the summer, homeowners experience the same kinds of issues — including feeling like their home is a hot house. However, once winter hits, it’s almost like that same home turns into a walk-in freezer. There are a few types of heat transfer, and by understanding how they work, you’ll soon see why your home might be feeling so uncomfortable. Controlling conduction and convection are essential to making your home feel more comfortable!
You might not notice the warning signs and attribute them to simply feeling a bit under the weather, but your home’s air quality can have serious implications for your health both in the short- and long-term.
When it comes to parts of the home that tend to be “out of sight, out of mind,” our attics take the cake. Many homeowners from Frankfort to Effingham have never even stepped foot in their attics and are unaware of what things actually look like up there, let alone whether or not issues such as mold may be present. The fact is, mold that’s either in your attic, on the sheathing or visible on other structures can be a serious problem.
Turning up your AC may not be the only solution to staying cool this summer. With spray foam insulation you can save money and enjoy whole-home comfort all summer long and for years after.
In many ways, the home energy audit is like a visit to the mechanic for your vehicle, except the focus is placed on home performance.
Insulation is a project that shouldn’t wait. By improving your home’s insulation, you’ll be able to start saving on your energy bills and see a return on your investment more quickly.
Installing new, energy efficient HVAC equipment is an effective way to reduce monthly energy costs, but few things compare to the versatility and overall effectiveness of spray foam insulation.
Spring has finally hit the Frankfort and Decatur area. You’re probably already in the midst of cleaning and organizing other projects around the house. While you surely remember to store away winter clothes and clean the barbecue, it’s less likely that you’ve thought about checking your home’s insulation.
At Assured, we know that there’s simply no home performance upgrade that can make as noticeable a difference as insulation. This is especially true of multifamily buildings, which can utilize a great deal of energy if not insulated properly. As many as 90% of homes throughout the United States suffer from a lack of insulation, and this includes multifamily homes.
