Home Insulation

Home and Residential Insulation

Our Home Energy Provides Home Insulation ServicesWe will also be sure to take a look at your home insulation. If your home doesn't have robust, dependable insulation in place, odds are likely that you are losing a lot of energy throughout the year. We provide replacement insulation for: attics, walls, basements, crawl spaces, and for the whole home. We are proud to provide insulation installation services for the following brands of insulating materials: Dow®, Tripolymer®, Owens Corning®, Johns Manville®, Oregon Shepherd®, Nu-Wool®, and Knauf®. How Does Insulation Work? Think of insulation for your home like a blanket. Whenever you wrap a blanket around your arms, the blanket itself doesn't create heat. Instead, it helps to lock in the warmth your body is generating. This is exactly what insulating your home is capable of doing for you. This is also true for air conditioning, as proper insulation doesn't allow the cold air to escape your home. Having the proper insulation can be the difference between being cold in the winter or hot in the summer, or being comfortable.

New Replacement Windows

Your home's windows will be thoroughly checked during a home energy audit by individuals who have been in the business since 1998! We know that your windows are responsible for keeping the cool, bitter air out during the winter and the hot, scorching heat out during the summer months. If we discover that your home has older windows which are noticeably drafty or are letting in an abundant amount of heat, you may be losing a lot of energy and it may be time for replacement. We offer replacement window installation services for the following brands: Andersen®, Marvin®, Pella®, Imperial®, and Barrington®. With Our Home Energy you get the full advantage of total energy efficiency in your replacement windows by upgrading old materials with new modern ones and ensuring that the fit is tight. A properly fit window gets rid of any air leakage around or by way of the frame. Get the best energy cost savings with top of the line windows combined with our expert replacement services.


New Replacement Exterior Doors

Your home's entry doors and interior doors will also be checked during the audit for energy efficiency. If one of our professions discovers that your door is very old or is not as efficient as what a replacement could be, we offer fast, affordable door installation services. We proudly work with the following door manufacturers: Therma-Tru®, Albany®, Masonite®, Pro Via®, and Karona®. With our large selection of choices that come with the numerous types of front entry doors, picking out the best one for your home can be very exciting and confusing at the same time.

We offer furnace and air conditioner replacement systems from American Standard®.  We also provide service and maintenance for all the major brands such as Trane®, Carrier®, Lennox®, and others!

Garage Insulation

Garage Insulation

Our Home Energy provides spray foam garage insulation throughout Chicagoland. Garage insulation, although overlooked, is very practical and useful. It provides you a comfortable work space, lowers utility costs and acts as a sound barrier. No longer are you bound to the limitations of your garage being too hot or too cold depending on the outside conditions. Garage insulation also helps save a significant amount of money on energy bills from heating and cooling air-flow being sucked out through crevices in your walls. With our garage insulation, you can block these openings and start enjoying your garage more while saving more on your home energy.

Spray Foam Insulation

Another benefit to garage insulation is the considerable amount of sound resistance from our spray foam insulation material. This type of insulation we work with on a daily basis acts as a thorough sound barrier to reduce noise and cancel any unnecessary vibrations through out your home. This will keep your home comfortable and quiet at all times while enjoying a livable work environment in your garage.
