Even though it’s still May, you’ve probably turned on your air conditioner by now in order to cool down. While your air conditioner may be in great working order, did you know that there’s something that can help it work even better? It’s called Radiant Barrier insulation by eShield.
This type of home insulation can not only insulate your home to keep it warm, but can also insulate it to keep it cool. It has a reflective quality that helps reverse the impact of heat and protects your home from three different heat types: emission, conduction, and convection. Emission heat refers to heat transfer by the sun while conduction heat refers to heat transfer through contact and convection heat refers to heat transfer through movement of hot air.
During the summertime, emission heat has a major impact on many homes; any drafty areas that are present let in hot air from the outside and let out cool air from the inside, making your home comfort level uneven. With a protective insulation, however, these drafty areas will be protected and your home will stay cool with its very own heat “shield.”
While Radiant Barrier insulation can help you and your family stay cool, it can also help you save money on your energy costs. When your home retains its cool air, your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to keep it at a comfortable level. This means that you won’t have to run your air conditioner as much and in the end, it’ll help save you money. You also won’t be producing as many emissions as before, which means you’ll reduce your carbon footprint and live a greener lifestyle.
