In Chicagoland’s and Central Illinois’ blistering summer heat and brutal winter cold, if your home is wasting energy, you’ll be wasting money right along with it. Checking your home’s energy efficiency is something that should be done on a regular basis. Making improvements will not only increase your comfort level, but will also help you save on energy costs and be more environmentally friendly.
When most people think “recessed lighting,” energy loss is not one of the first things that comes to mind. Instead, they’re thinking about ambiance, comfort, mood and everything else that can easily be affected by lighting within a home. What often goes overlooked about recessed lighting, however, is just how much of an impact it can have on home performance.
Crawlspaces are very commonly found in the Frankfort, IL area. Most crawlspaces in IL homes are unencapsulated, which means they’re filled with dirt, debris, insects, mold and a host of other contaminants.
The crawlspace is a very common element found in homes located throughout Frankfort, IL. Many homeowners and their families go throughout their days without really even thinking about their crawlspaces, taking an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to the mysterious part of the home that sits below our living spaces. The thing is, untreated crawlspaces can actually have a negative effect on home performance, including contributing to poor indoor air quality.
Summer is almost here in Frankfort, IL, and homeowners are anxiously gearing up for the warm weather to come. While now may not seem like the time of year when home air loss is top of mind for homeowners, a tightly-sealed building envelope is just as important during the summertime as it is during the winter months. This is especially true in homes that are cooled throughout the summer with AC units, in which case you can end up losing a great deal of energy through the cracks and gaps scattered throughout the home.
The heat of summer is on its way in Frankfort and while many people are excited about the warm weather to come, many are also stressed about what it means in terms of keeping their Illinois home cool.
Summer is almost here, which means a lot of homeowners in Frankfort, IL and elsewhere are gearing up for a fun season of vacations and warm weather relaxation. It also means people are trying to save as much money as possible so that they don’t have to worry about stretching themselves too thin—something that happens all too often when vacation season comes around. You may not realize it, but chances are you’re paying more in heating and cooling costs than is necessary.
Spring is finally here and temperatures are continuing to rise with each passing day. Winter is finally behind us, which has many Illinois homeowners looking towards spring cleaning and getting ready for the warmer days that are currently on the way.

At Assured Insulation Solutions, we get a great deal of questions each year about which form of insulation is most worth choosing when approaching a retrofit. While there are a number of different options on the market, we often recommend spray foam for a variety of reasons.
