The most important consideration for keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter is a proper installation of your insulation. Best Pick Reports conducts ongoing research so you can identify professional residential insulation installers for your Chicago home.
Contractors and other home service providers must meet strict criteria to be among the Best Picks. For instance, they must excel in our research in comparison to competitors and carry proper licensing and insurance. More importantly, no one can pay to become a Best Pick Company.
However, the most valuable part of our research process involves the feedback received from customers. As a regular part of our research process, we conduct interviews with Chicago homeowners every year to provide valuable feedback on insulation contractors they've used. Knowing their feedback is confidential, and the contractor does not employ their interviewer, homeowners are often candid in expressing opinions.
Proper insulation brings energy-efficiency to your home's comfort systems. It's not just for attics and outside walls. Other areas of your home—basement and interior walls, floors above vented crawl spaces, an unheated garage or porch—should be insulated as well. You can even use some types of insulation to provide for sound control. Whether fiberglass, mineral wool, cellulose, cotton, or spray foam insulation, Chicago homeowners should know that the most common problem is not just having too little insulation. The most common issue is ensuring the greatest thermal performance (or "R" value) that your insulation should provide. The only way to achieve this is through proper installation.
