Many homeowners in Frankfort, IL go to great lengths to reduce their energy bills, especially during the summer months of the year. They keep their HVAC systems running as little as possible, turn off lights whenever they’re not at home and keep their showers short, all the while thinking that these are the best ways to save money on home energy costs.

 

While these and other techniques are certainly steps in the right direction, they don’t even scratch the surface of the savings associated with adding insulation to your home.

Do I Need an Insulation Upgrade?

Many people assume that their homes were properly insulated when they were first constructed. While this may be the case in some situations, it’s unfortunately not always true. As many as 90% of U.S. homes are under-insulated, and the vast majority of these homeowners don’t even realize that they have a problem on their hands. If you tend to experience drafts or you can simply never get your home to be quite as comfortable as you’d like it to be, chances are you’re in need of a spray foam insulation upgrade.

 

Guesswork won’t do you any favors when it comes to enhancing home efficiency and comfort, so it’s important to get the information necessary for knowing for sure whether or not you need to address your insulation. You need to find out the following:

 

  • Where your home is and isn’t insulated

  • What type of insulation has been installed

  • The insulation’s R-value

 

You can most likely get this information from the builder if your home is relatively new. For those who live in older homes, however, an inspection will need to be performed, and there’s no way to get a better sense of whether or not you require new insulation than to schedule a home energy audit with Assured Energy Solutions
