How Reflective Foil Insulation Could Benefit Your Home in Greenville, Spartanburg, or Anywhere Else in South Carolina or Western North Carolina
At Energy Sharks, the reflective foil insulation that we offer is designed to help greatly improve the energy efficiency of your home in Greenville, Spartanburg, or any other area location. Unlike traditional fiberglass insulation, which slows and absorbs heat flow, foil insulation is unique in that it actually reflects the heat that it comes in contact with in the attic. In other words, this foil insulation helps to retain warmth in the winter and deflect heat in the summer, saving your money on heating and cooling bills throughout the year. If you are tired of watching your energy bills skyrocket, you struggle to keep your home at a consistent temperature, or you’re simply looking to reduce your reliance on your energy company, Energy Sharks can help.
There are three main types of heat flow that tend to affect the home:
- Conductive heat
- Convective heat
- Radiant heat
Standard fiberglass insulation is effective because it is designed to slow and absorb conduction and convection – particularly in the attic where the majority of heat transfer into and out of homes occurs. The problem with fiberglass insulation, however, is that it isn’t especially effective against radiant heat flow, which is actually the primary source of energy waste in the home. That’s where foil insulation works. This insulation can be installed alongside attic insulation to provide comprehensive protection against all types of heat transfer. At Energy Sharks, we specialize in designing custom energy efficiency solutions and one of our top recommendations is to take a two-tiered approach to attic insulation with both our high-quality blown-in insulation and foil insulation for unbeatable results.
Featuring technology similar that developed by NASA for its space program, our distinct foil insulation product has grown in popularity across the country in recent years.
