Reflective Insulation Chicago, Radiant Barrier

Reflective Insulation, Radiant Barrier Insulation

  • R-Values range from R -3.7 to R-21 depending on the applications
  • It is very effective in warm climates where it is useful in keeping buildings cool
  • Generally a little more expensive due to it being a metal-based product
  • Effective in warmer but not in colder climates. It will require to be combined with other forms of insulation in colder climates, In order to prevent heat loss in cold weather
  • Does not provide air seal tight benefits

Traditional Insulation:

Fiberglass-Insulation-Chicago Insulatec

Fiberglass Insulation

  • It’s easy to install and low cost
  • Fiberglass insulation can reduce energy costs, provide interior and exterior sound control
  • Not pest-deterring.
  • It may deteriorate over time or lose its insulating power (R-value)
  • Does not provide air seal tight benefits
Cellulose-Insulation. InsulaTec Chicago

Cellulose Insulation

  • Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newspapers that are treated with non-toxic borate
  • Non-flammable
  • Cellulose can also reduce the noise heard between rooms
  • Cellulose has the ability to absorb moisture, and although it can dry out, it still leaves the possibility for mold formation
  • Pest-deterring material
  • Does not provide air seal tight benefits

Mineral Wool Insulation

  • Mineral wool batts are denser than other types of insulation, making them  a little better at soundproofing interior walls, floors, and ceilings
  • Mineral wool will not easily dry if it becomes damp or wet, Creating a potential mold problem. In many cases, the only solution is to remove the wet parts and replace them.
  • Not pest-deterring material
  • Does not provide air seal tight benefits
