Do you open your monthly energy bills with a sense of dread at how high they’re going to be? How would you like to see a significant decrease in energy costs? At Texas Pro Insulators, we can help. We’re proud to install reflective radiant barrier insulation, a phenomenal product that can help improve the thermal performance of your home in the Cibolo, Texas, area.
The Key to an Energy-Efficient Home: A Cool Attic
Though the interior of your home is likely insulated, your attic may not be. Therefore, the temperature inside your attic can soar to the extremes, particularly in the hot summer seasons. It’s easy to see how a hot attic sitting atop a cool home can work against the efforts of an HVAC system, which is especially true if the HVAC is in the attic. An overheated HVAC will not be able to run as efficiently, and it is liable to break down more quickly.
Radiant barrier is installed along the sidewalls and roof of the attic where it will reflect heat outward. And unlike other radiant barriers on the market, ours includes 97% reflective AND conductive insulation for exceptional results. In fact, with eShield radiant barrier installed by the professionals at Texas Pro Insulators, the temperature inside your attic can fall by as much as 50 degrees. With a cool attic, your HVAC can run more efficiently, and you can reap energy savings of 25-35%. When you consider how much of a return on investment that is, you can understand why we consider radiant barrier to be one of the most important upgrades for improving home energy efficiency.
Radiant Barrier Is Only the Start
At Texas Pro Insulators, we’re proud to be an authorized dealer of eShield’s “Perfect Attic System.” This system includes radiant barrier as well as blown-in fiberglass insulation, air sealing, attic ventilation, and a programmable thermostat.
