Our company was created in order to help our community become more energy efficient through the use of insulation. During almost every home energy assessment our company has conducted, at least one room in the home is losing energy due to inadequate insulation levels.
Air leakage within the home causes homeowner’s to use about 50% more energy to heat or cool the home, averaging an additional cost of about $100-$200 per month. Insulation reduces your carbon footprint and preserves the use of natural resources used to heat or cool a building. By insulating, air sealing and ventilating your home, Comfort 1st Insulation helps our community save money on energy payments while also protecting the environment.

Comfort 1st Insulation uses top of the line equipment and tools for installation installations. For spray foam insulation installations, our team uses an automatic spraying machine in order to evenly coat the walls or ceiling. An industrial insulation vacuum is used for insulation removal and sucks out the old insulation without dispersing any of the soiled material or particles into the air. For mold removal, Comfort 1st Insulation uses the industrial strength cleaner MMR MOLD STAIN REMOVER from Bad Axe which kills the mold, sanitizes and neutralizes odors.

These insulation deficient areas are portrayed through the camera as hot or cold spots. We evaluate six important areas of your home: attics, rim & band joists walls, windows & doors, mechanical systems, and indoor air quality.
After the energy assessment is completed, the customer is given a free quote which details a strategy plan to bring their home to it’s highest efficiency level. Comfort 1st Technicians can go over the cost to insulate a house and go over different products and options to fit your budget.
Comfort 1st Insulation provides expert spray foam insulation services in Roscoe, IL, which is the best product for attic insulation. Spray foam not only provides an air seal but also has one of the highest R-Values available on the market (5.0 – 7.0 per inch). Insulating an attic with spray foam strengthens the adjacent walls and deadens sound. This type of insulation is durable, long lasting and can be used for residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial applications.
Fiberglass insulation is also an effective product for attic insulation. Fiberglass has an R-Value of about 2.2 – 2.7 per inch and is also one of the most affordable insulation products for those who are on a tight budget. Fiberglass can be installed in batts or as a loose-fill. The benefit of loose-fill is that insulation can be added to existing walls by drilling small holes in the wall and blowing in the loose-fill fiberglass with an insulation blower machine. The holes are than covered and blended back into the walls. This process is called retro-fit insulation. Fiberglass batts can easy be installed in between the joists in the attic ceiling and the walls.

K13 is a spray on insulation used for thermal and noise control which is applied to ceilings as an exposed finish. This spray is used to create a comfortable sound controlled environment in offices, bars, restaurants and event venues.
K13 thermal insulation spray is created from cellulose materials which are used to reduce noise levels and absorb sound. This versatile product can be applied on many surfaces and is useful in reducing noise in offices, music venues, restaurants or metal roofs.
Spraying fire resistant K13 insulation on the ceiling of a building increases safety. K13 thermal insulation is fire class 0 meaning that it decreases the heat release and prevents the spread of flames on surfaces.
This green form of insulation is composed of recyclable materials such as cotton and wood. Applying K13 offers many esthetic benefits and can compliment any color scheme as the spray is offered in a variety of different colors.
K13 spray can be applied 5 inches thick and has an R-Value of 3.75 per inch. This versatile spray can be applied to almost any surface shape such as domed, curved and corrugated. One of the many benefits of this spray is that it fills in gaps, cracks, creates an air seal, stops air leakage, condensation and moisture. Another amazing quality about K13 is that it adheres to metal, glass, gypsum, wood, concrete, and plasterboard.
Air sealing is a cost-effective way to cut home energy costs by closing gaps which prevents air leakage— leading to a comfortable and healthy home. To put in perspective, every leak, gap and hole within a home, on average, equivocates to leaving a window open every day … all year.
