Many of the homes throughout the Chicagoland and Northern Indiana have been occupied for close to a century. Some of these houses have been retrofitted throughout the years to help keep the home and its occupants, healthy and happy. A common finding of a home energy audit is that attic insulation or basement insulation is in bad shape. It’s often deteriorated, suffering from a host of issues including water damage and pollutants. The experts at Assured Insulation Solutions are trained in insulation removal and replacement and are here to make the process as seamless as possible.

What’s in My Old Insulation?

The fact of the matter is, the insulation in your attic or basement isn’t meant to last forever. In many houses, insulation has been kept several decades past its intended lifespan. Just as is the case with food, this can make your insulation a breeding ground for some unwelcome guests such as:

  • Mold
  • Critters
  • Vermin
  • Bad odors
  • Water damage

The professional removal of aged out insulation will bolster indoor air quality by protecting you from these contaminants. Without professional insulation removal, your old insulation’s mold and pest problems will grow exponentially.

Our Process

Insulation wears down over the years, and as it breaks down, its thermal resistance decreases. This adds up to a home that isn’t providing you with the highest level of home comfort and costs you in unnecessarily high utility bills. Our team at Assured Insulation Solutions has a time-tested practice to remove your home’s insulation.

We use an industry-grade vacuum, one of the most powerful available, to ensure every bit of outdated insulation is removed from your home. We use specialized bags to dispose of the old insulation in a dumpster, so you’ll never have to worry about it blowing around your yard. Afterward, our team is ready to install new insulation to keep your home comfortable, energy efficient, and free from the multitude of problems outdated insulation can cause.

Benefits of Insulation Removal

The benefits of insulation removal and replacement are numerous, including:

  • A healthier home, free of uninvited mold, odors, and animals.
  • Less wear and tear on HVAC systems.
  • Lower monthly utility bills.
  • Lower carbon footprint.
  • Increased home resale value.

Get Started
  • Had to write you a note as to the positive results of the sealing and insulation job you did for us. For the first time in the 13 years we have lived here, our house is comfortable from top to bottom. Our second floor addition was always in the 80s on hot days and our air conditioners would run all day. When the temps reached the 90s we are at 73 degrees and the unit actually shuts off regularly. The best part for me is the basement is not freezing cold because our main unit actually turns off as the first floor stays at 73 degrees now too! Well, the best part should come when our electric bill arrives and we didn't pay to run our 2 air conditioners 24/7.

    I admit I was skeptical but I am so glad every time I walk in the house that I had to let you know how pleased we are with the work and the results. Your crew was great and took time to explain what they were doing. I have been bragging about how comfortable my home is now, Thanks again.
