Where to Insulate in Your New Chicago Home
Did you know it can be more cost-effective to add insulation during construction than it is to retrofit it after your home is finished? Additionally, it’s important to figure out exactly where you want to insulate and the R-values for each area. You can use the Home Energy Saver tool to determine where you may need to add insulation. This tool will also calculate the recommended R-value based on your climate, HVAC system type and other factors.

Home New Construction Insulation Installation in Chicago, IL
As you prepare to make a newly built house a home, your comfort is an important component—and insulation has a huge influence on the comfort of your home. The insulation experts at ThermaSeal / Lakeside Insulation can help you determine which form of insulation will best serve your home. We can install:
- Fiberglass. This type of insulation is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
- Cellulose. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint and other recycled paper. Consisting of up to 85 percent recycled content and requiring less energy to make than other types of insulation, it’s one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials available.
- Spray foam. Because this form of insulation can expand into a thick foam that snugly fills the designated space, it is a great way to make sure every nook and cranny is insulated!
