PJ Fitzpatrick is now offering a revolutionary new type of insulation! eShield™ Radiant Barrier Energy Reflective Insulation is unlike any other product on the market today. Boasting state-of-the-art technology that stops 97% of radiant energy transfer, eShield™ is the most cost-effective way to lower heating and cooling bills.
In the insulation industry, there is a lot of talk about R-values, which measure resistance to convection and conduction. The idea is that the higher the R-value, the better the insulation. However, this perception ignores the importance of E-value, which is a measure of the material’s resistance to emission. Without protection against all three types of heat transfer—convection, conduction, and emission—your home will lose energy, and your power bill will rise.
eShield™ Energy Reflective Insulation is based on the same advanced technology and design as a space suit—it reflects radiant heat. In this way, this new insulation is able to protect homes from the sun’s searing rays during summer and retain interior warmth during winter, dramatically reducing energy consumption year-round.
In these photos, an identical heat source is applied to two installations: one with R-19 mass insulation only and one with the same mass insulation covered by a single layer of eShield™ Energy Reflective Insulation.
Because it works with existing house insulation, rather than replacing it, eShield™ is also a very environmentally-friendly type of insulation and is Energy Star-approved, so it’s perfectly suited for “Greenovations.”
Approved by the Department of Energy, eShield™ is Energy Star® approved and qualifies for the energy tax credits.
