Upgrading the insulation of your Illinois home can be an intrusive project. And any time you are bringing someone into your home, you should be able to trust them to treat it as if it were their own! When it comes to home performance upgrades like insulation and crawlspace encapsulation, it can be tough to separate the weed from the chaff — especially with so many contractors vying for your attention.

So what are the things to look for when you are looking for a trusted home performance contractor? Here are a few things that the experts at Assured Insulation have found to be most important when inviting a technician into your home.

Are They Certified?

Any company can buy nice equipment, but you can’t simply purchase knowledge.  One of the first things to look for in a contractor is their certifications. This ensures they have the proper education to solve your home comfort issues, without sacrificing energy efficiency. A home performance contractor that is Building Performance Institute certified will approach your whole home as one system, meaning that the key to energy efficiency and home comfort lies in treating each part of your home as having a symbiotic relationship.

Local Affiliations

Another important thing to look for in a home performance contractor is any affiliations with credible local entities, like Chamber of Commerce or energy efficiency/home performance initiatives.

Assured Insulation is a member of both the Frankfort and Chicagoland Chambers of Commerce, an Efficiency First Home Performance Contractor, and a member of Illinois Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®. We are also A+ certified with the Better Business Bureau.

What Are Real Customers Saying?

Reviews are essential in a world where most homeowners search the internet before anything else. Of course any business is going to show you their best side first; but it's the real customers who won’t hold back on both the good and the bad. Check the reviews and see what actual Illinois homeowners are saying before you book your home performance contractor!
