If your home doesn’t have radiant barrier, you aren’t even scratching the surface of how energy and cost efficient it could be. Did you know that studies have shown 42 percent of home energy loss occurs through the roof? This means that your attic insulation plays a key role in bringing down your utility costs. When attic insulation was first developed, it was primarily designed to resist only two types of heat transfer: conduction and convection. However, we now know that radiant heat transfer is the primary cause of both heat gain and heat loss.
Luckily, there is a new radiant barrier product on the market, which we offer exclusively here at Tip Top Construction, that effectively blocks all three forms of energy transfer. Our Bella Foil™ features the same state-of-the-art technology used in NASA spacesuits and stops 97 percent of all radiant heat transfer. This results in significantly lower energy bills year round. In fact, Bella Foil™ radiant barrier can save homeowners 25 percent on energy costs during the first year after installation.
In addition to making your home more energy and cost efficient, Bella Foil™ attic insulation also:
- Requires no yearly maintenance
- Never has to be replaced
- Doesn’t emit harmful gas like other insulation products
- Contains no dangerous fibers or asthma-causing allergens
- Won’t cause mildew or any other moisture damage
- Qualifies homeowners for certain energy tax credits
