Most homeowners think that the only sure way to reduce one’s energy cost is to insulate their attics, but at AAPCO LC, we believe otherwise. Although the most common place to install insulation is in attics that absorb heat penetrating from the roof, the walls around your home have the potential of being insulated as well.
When you think about reducing the energy consumption in your home, it's in your best interest to equip your property with every energy-reducing system available. The more materials you have, the longer the benefits lasts, and one great place to start is your walls.
The biggest advantage you will receive from having an energy barrier installed is that it will help you cut down the cost of your electric bill significantly. Whenever it gets too hot outside, heat can easily travel into your home through air leaks, exposed surfaces, and other openings. Once this happens, you would usually combat the elements by turning on your air conditioning systems, which leads to an increase in your energy consumption and your bills.
When you have an energy barrier wall installed, instead of absorbing the heat, it will divert the heat away from your home. Thanks to its highly reflective properties, this material is best suited during the summer season. Another reason why energy barriers is an option you should consider is because it can be integrated with current installations and can be placed virtually anywhere. Energy barriers are versatile, easy to use and give you the opportunity to live more comfortably inside your home.
It may be possible to install any type of insulation on your own, but nothing beats the efficiency and speed of the professionals.
