  • Why Use Radiant Barriers or Reflective Foil Insulation?

    The amount and specific insulation materials in your home determine the level of efficiency you have. Because most energy use goes to our homes, having the correct combination of products is key to demanding and using less energy. Strikingly, the amount of homes that fall in this category are relatively small. Even homes built as little as a few years ago could withstand an upgrade.

    As the recent energy saving push continues, it is always important to recognize that energy savings within a home starts with stopping air infiltration and using the correct insulation specific to your application.

    Adding fiberglass insulation in attics is always a good start. Compliment this with attic radiant barriers and good ventilation, you ensure the most efficient attic possible. You've essentially increased the R-Value but now have the ability to block the transfer of radiant heat, a major mode of heat loss and gain, especially in attics.

    Specific types of foil insulation such as Ultra CBF were designed for under concrete slab use. Used with or without an in-floor radiant heat system, the material is superior to work with and holds up better to job site traffic than traditional board insulation.
