If the attic insulation in your San Antonio, Texas, home doesn’t have a radiant barrier, you should consider updating it with Bella Foil™ from Tip Top Construction. A radiant barrier can provide you with incomparable protection that not only keeps the interior of your home comfortable year-round, but also can save you a considerable amount of money over time.
Radiant barrier is a type of attic insulation, made of reflective material that deflects radiant heat. With a radiant barrier, the hot, Texas heat can’t penetrate the roof of your home as easily to affect the interior temperature of your entire house. And, when the weather is cool in the winter and you turn on the heat, a radiant barrier will keep that heat from escaping. This means that your HVAC system won’t be constantly working overtime to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Since radiant heat is the number one reason for home energy loss, homeowners who upgrade to radiant barrier insulation often see a drastic change in their monthly utility bills. In fact, our line of radiant barrier insulation, Bella Foil™, has saved our San Antonio customers up to 25 percent on their energy bills. Radiant barriers never need to be replaced, and they’re also a safe choice for your family because they don’t contain harmful fibers or allergens.
A radiant barrier is easy to install in a new home, or it can also be used in your existing home by pairing it with your current insulation, giving your home the ultimate protection. Most ordinary insulation will work to reduce conductive and convective heat, but it won’t reflect radiant heat like a radiant barrier can.
