blown in insulation attic

Assured Insulation Solutions, LLC is a leading Chicagoland attic insulation provider. We are here to help with this important component of Central Illinois home energy efficiency.

Insulation creates a barrier between the living space and unconditioned air. Without proper insulation heat can travel freely between living spaces and the attic all year long. Adding insulation to your attic can stop heat from escaping in the winter and keep heat from entering the home in the summer.

Why attic insulation matters:

  • Slows heat transmission
  • Conserves energy
  • Reduces temperature variations in the living space (increases comfort)
  • Helps reduce overall home heating and cooling loads
  • Extends equipment life 

As a bonus, attic insulation can reduce noise and vibration throughout the home. Depending on the type of insulation you use, it can also add structural strength and improve your home’s fire resistance.

The science behind attic insulation:

Heat passes all too easily through a poorly insulated attic. In the winter, heated interior air rises naturally by convection and escapes into the attic through air leaks. Conductive heat loss through the cold ceiling makes rooms directly beneath the attic even colder. The problem reverses on a hot summer day, as attic temperatures rise to the 140-degree range and heat moves into your living space.

Attic insulation slows both conduction and convection. Insulation traps air, which makes it more difficult for heat to travel from space to space. Insulation R-value is a measurement of its effectiveness in accomplishing that task. The higher the R-value, the stronger the insulation.

Types of insulation we use in attics:

  • Blown cellulose – a fire-resistant recycled paper product
  • Blown fiberglass
  • Traditional fiberglass batt, where appropriate

  • It's 14 degrees outside and balmy inside our house now. I am tempted to wear a Hawaiian shirt and pair of shorts. Really, it's quite a change from before. The house is much more evenly heated across rooms and across floors, we don't feel the drafts anymore or see our breath in the closets, and the furnace seems like it hardly cycles on anymore. Really impressive job by you and your team. We can't get over what a difference it has made - thanks!
