If you’ve been debating as to whether or not to have home insulation installed in your San Antonio, Texas, residence, think the dilemma over no more. Insulation, especially radiant barrier, is an effective home improvement addition that will keep your house more comfortable all year long and can potentially save you money on your energy bills.
While traditional home insulation is a good start, it doesn’t fully protect your home, especially in southern cities like San Antonio where the sun beats down on your house and the temperature outside is warm for the majority of the year. In fact, basic insulation methods do very little to protect your home from the number one type of heat transfer into and out of homes – radiant heat. Taking your home insulation to the next level by installing radiant barrier insulation can help block up to 97 percent of all radiant heat transfer into and out of your home.
Radiant barrier is a foil insulation that reflects radiant heat waves. By preventing heat from escaping during the cooler winter months and blocking heat from entering your home in the sweltering summer months, radiant barrier home insulation helps regulate the internal temperature of your home year-round. This increases your home’s energy efficiency by reducing the stress that would ordinarily be placed on your HVAC system, which in turn can actually lower your heating and cooling costs.
