eSHIELD ATTIC INSULATION
Attic Insulation Isn’t Complete Without eShield™
Did you know that attics are the top culprits when it comes to heat loss in your home? Although many homes have fiberglass or another type of attic insulation, they still don’t protect you completely from the outside temperature – or from high energy bills. One cause for expensive power bills that many homeowners don’t consider is depleted R-value. As insulation ages, its ability to resist heat decreases along with its effectiveness. In addition, insulation that’s been subject to moisture or has compressed over time does not provide its labeled R-value. So, unless you’ve updated your building’s attic insulation recently, you probably don’t have as much protection as you think you do.
Another reason for energy loss through the attic is emission, or radiant heat transfer, which is essentially the transfer of heat through empty space, rather than by direct contact. If you’ve ever felt the warmth of the sun on your face, then you’ve experienced heat transfer by emission. Adding attic insulation such as fiberglass or cellulose doesn’t fully address this type of transfer because they protect mostly against convection and conduction, two other types of heat transfer.
Your roof is constantly subject to the heat of the sun during summer and the cold of the rain, snow, and winds during winter, making it very difficult to keep heat from flowing between the inside and out. After a certain point, regular insulation simply can’t absorb any more heat, rendering it basically useless. Rather than absorb the heat and hold it, eShield™ actually reflects it, helping you keep the temperature of your home independent from the outside environment. By addressing all three types of energy transfer, your attic insulation can help lower your utility bills and keep your family cozy.
