After the attic, the most significant area of heat loss or gain are the walls of your home. Insulated walls will result in a more comfortable home and lower heating and cooling bills. All Comfort Insulation can fill your home’s walls with insulation without having to remove the drywall.
In 2 story homes there can be more than twice the area of walls as attic area. Additionally, insulating your attic is not as effective if your walls are not also insulated. All Comfort Insulation has insulated the walls of thousands of homes.
Frame homes make up the majority of homes in the suburbs. They are homes with 2x4 or 2x6 construction. All Comfort Insulation fills these wall cavities with Owens Corning Pro Pink Fiberglass Insulation or Cellulose Insulation. This process significantly increases the R-value of your home’s walls, providing improved comfort and lower heating and cooling bills. We can help make your home more cozy throughout all of our seasons – from Chicago’s bitter cold winters to its hot, humid summers.
What causes drafts in an uninsulated home?
Drafts are not only caused by leaky windows or doors. In poorly insulated homes they're caused by the movement of heat towards cold. When warm air meets the cold wall surface, warm air rises and the cold air falls causing drafty floors. Children playing on the floor are subject to more colds and runny noses!
