If you’re considering adding reflective foil insulation to your home in San Antonio, Texas, turn to Tip Top Construction. We carry BellaFoil™ radiant barrier, a product we are the exclusive carriers of in the area. BellaFoil™ is a retrofit reflective foil insulation that can be installed on top of your existing insulation to form the ultimate protective barrier for your home.
BellaFoil™ works differently from other forms of insulation because it blocks radiant heat transfer, which is the number one method of home energy loss. The benefit to this is that it actually prevents the radiant energy from entering or leaving your home, whereas traditional insulation only slows down the heat transfer process.
By blocking up to 97 percent of radiant heat transfer, along with blocking conduction and convection heat transfer when paired with your existing insulation, BellaFoil™ can help reduce the strain on your HVAC system as it works to maintain internal temperatures in your home. When your air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard, it uses less energy, thereby reducing your home’s electricity bills.
In addition to the energy efficiency that BellaFoil™ reflective foil insulation can bring to your home in San Antonio, it offers several other benefits to homeowners, such as:
- No annual maintenance
- Never needs replacing
- Doesn’t emit harmful gas
- Contains no dangerous fibers or asthma-causing allergens
- Won’t cause mildew or other water damage
