Nobody likes seeing their energy bills increasing. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to help improve the energy efficiency of your home and start saving money! In our opinion, installing radiant barrier (foil) insulation is one such option.
Tidewater Insulators installs radiant barrier insulation in Williamsburg, Virginia. Radiant barrier insulation is usually installed in the attic and increases your home’s ability to reflect, rather than absorb, the sun’s energy. This helps make your home much cooler in the summer!
In order for a radiant barrier insulation to be considered effective, the foil material must allow less than 10 percent of the radiant heat to pass through it. The radiant barriers we install are extremely effective!
Radiant Barrier Installation
Although radiant barrier is typically installed in attics, most homes can benefit from radiant barrier installation, especially Williamsburg homes with:
- Insufficient (or no) attic insulation
- Insulation that has aged considerably
- Air ducts in the attic
- A stuffy, hot second story
- Asphalt shingle roofing
- Little or no shading from trees
You’d be surprised at the difference radiant barrier can make—radiant barrier insulation is extremely effective at reflecting direct sunlight away from your home, helping to keep it more comfortable no matter what time of year it is.
Benefits of Radiant Barrier Insulation
In addition to keeping your Williamsburg home more comfortable, radiant barrier installation can also help:
- Maximize your home’s energy efficiency and save you money
- Increase the efficiency of your air conditioner
- Protect your home from bacteria and fungi growth
- Reduce attic temperatures by up to 30 degrees (especially great for those who actually use their attics)
