If you often feel like your San Antonio, TX home is uncomfortably warm, installing reflective insulation in the attic may be the perfect solution. Traditional insulation (such as batting or spay foam) can be very effective at slowing down heat transfer through a solid surface or the air, but it doesn’t actually prevent the sun’s radiant heat (radiation) from entering your home. Reflective insulation, on the other hand, can keep unwanted solar heat gain out of your home in the first place. This makes it much easier to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors, no matter how hot or humid it is outside. And when it’s cold outside, radiant barrier also can keep warmth inside your home like a blanket.
Here at Tip Top Construction, we provide San Antonio homeowners with Bella Foil™ radiant barrier insulation. Bella Foil™ is made from a double-sided aluminized polyester film, which can block up to 97 percent of radiant heat transfer. Instead of trying to absorb the energy, our state-of-the-art option reflects it – something mass insulation simply can’t do.
Together with your existing insulation, your new reflective insulation will serve as the ultimate energy blocking barrier:
- The foil provides resistance against all three types of heat flow (conduction, convection, and radiation.)
- The foil forms an effective barrier against moisture, air currents, and vapors.
- The improved insulation can take some of the stress off your heating and cooling appliances, which in turn can produce major energy savings.
Retrofitting your home to include radiant barrier reflective insulation is quick and easy. Bella Foil™ is pliable and puncture-proof, and can be conformed to almost any attic configuration. Our home energy experts at Tip Top Construction won’t need to make extensive modifications to your space. Instead, we can have it installed with little to no fuss, and you’ll never have to worry about future maintenance.
