Spray foam insulation is a state-of-the-art insulation product that dramatically increases a home's thermal performance. With a superior R-value and unmatched air sealing capabilities, it reduces air leakage while providing the best thermal performance of any insulation product on the market. Any South Chicagoland or northwest Indiana area home can benefit from expert spray foam insulation from Assured Insulation Solutions.
Spray polyurethane foam has an R-value (thermal resistance) of approximately 6 per inch of installed insulation, making it one of the highest performance insulation products on the market. This means that your home will be warmer, and less drafty, even in conventionally framed construction.
Spray polyurethane foam fills all the cracks and gaps within the cavities that it fills, avoiding the common problem of air leakage that plagues other types of insulation such as fiberglass batts. This reduces drafts and prevents infiltration of moisture and harmful gases.
Reduces Moisture and Mold
Because of the superior air sealing properties of SPF (spray polyurethane foam), moisture is less likely to enter your building once it's been insulated with spray foam. This reduces the risk of mold, as well as the risks of rot and structural damage that accompany water infiltration.
Open Cell Foam and Closed Cell Foam
We offer both open cell and closed cell spray foam products. Closed cell provides a superior air and moisture barrier, making it the most effective insulation available for energy performance. Open cell spray foam is a more affordable option that still provides an air sealing capacity and an R-value that supersede nearly every other insulation product on the market.
Spray Foam Insulation in Your Attic
One of the best ways for Illinois and northwest Indiana residents to enhance home performance is by insulating their attics. The attic is one of the easiest parts of the home to retrofit or correct, and spray foam is an excellent material for doing so. Fiberglass and cellulose don’t stop air movement, which means that they will allow heat to escape through the attic, rendering your home less comfortable than it should be.
Assured Insulation Solutions can help to save you money and boost home performance by properly installing spray foam insulation in your attic, and we’re only a phone call away.
Spray Foam Insulation in Your Basement
Many people don’t realize just how much energy loss can occur in the basement. Concrete has an R-value of only R ½ for every 4”, which gives air ample opportunity to find its way into the basement. Since typical foundation walls are only 8” thick, this means basements that are uninsulated have an R-value of R 1. Adding spray foam insulation to your basement can be an excellent way to defer heat loss and enhance comfort levels in your South Chicagoland home.
Spray Foam Insulation in Your Crawl Space
Crawl spaces are often considered “out of sight, out of mind,” which means they also tend to be somewhat out of control. This being said, the crawl space is an integral part of the building envelope and should never be ignored. Extreme temperature differences in crawl spaces can lead to marked heat loss, as well as random heat gain. Stopping air movement with spray foam insulation is the best way to solve the problem, and Assured Insulation Solutions is here to help.
