Proper insulation is extremely important especially with the drastic climate changes that can take place in Chicago. The thermal envelope of a building holds the responsibility of keeping outside air out and cooled/heated air in. Traditionally, when a person thinks of insulation their mind goes to fiberglass. However, fiberglass is known for losing its effectiveness with temperature fluctuations as well as for being permeable, allowing outside air into your home. Luckily, there are a wide array of fiberglass alternatives from spray foam to cellulose that provide superior thermal seals and are much more effective in insulating your home.
