As some of the biggest sources of heat loss in your home, the walls are a good place to start when it comes to maximizing the energy efficiency of your home. If your energy bills are much higher than normal (particularly compared to the same time last year), or it feels drafty and uncomfortable in your home, you may need more wall insulation.
If you live in Joliet, Illinois and need to insulate the walls of your home, you’ve come to the right place—ThermaSeal / Lakeside Insulation can help! We help homeowners all over the area, from Caton Farm to Shorewood and everywhere in between.
