The importance of effective attic insulation cannot be understated. Your attic is the number one area responsible for heat loss/gain in your home. Therefore, radiant barrier and attic insulation are major players in your home’s heating and cooling, which directly translates into your energy bill. For homeowners in Illinois looking for ways to start conserving energy and saving money, Think Smart offers a complete solution to attic insulation that will help them do just that.
Many homes have inadequate attic insulation or even worse, none at all. When Think Smart’s cellulose insulation is installed, it creates a seal with a seamless blanket of natural, environmentally-friendly fiber that, even on the hottest or coolest days of the year, does not lose R-Value. This results in the ultimate in comfort and savings for any home.
Think Smart also offers a reflective attic insulation product. Unlike typical insulation that merely resists heat, our reflective attic insulation reflects heat by acting as a radiant heat barrier. This allows homeowners to maintain comfortable temperatures throughout the home on a year round basis.
