Electricity is a valuable resource that homes just can’t function without. However, using too much energy is quite costly and can send your utility bills through the roof. Thankfully, today’s modern technology has made it much simpler to equip your home or building with various energy saving systems and upgrades. From eco-friendly appliances to vinyl windows, there is a wide range of products available for you to choose from. However, if you want to be one step ahead with your energy efficient lifestyle, AAPCO recommends that you insulate your property with eShield™ insulation.
One of the most common energy-efficient installations you can get is insulation. In general, insulation keeps your indoor environment at a pleasant temperature – even without the aid of your cooling or heating devices. There are a lot of insulating materials to choose from (e.g. fiberglass, polyurethane foam and cellulose). However, compared to other materials, eShield insulation is the safest and healthiest option available.
eShield™ is a multilayer of reflective foil made with environmentally friendly materials. Because of this, eShield™ is greener than most insulation options and can reflect up to 97% of all radiant heat transfers. Unlike fiberglass insulation, eShield™ comes in giant sheets or rolls so there’s no danger in inhaling the material. It’s also easier to install because it’s placed over the surface of the attic or installed between the walls and above the ceiling.
eShield insulation makes it simpler to achieve the energy efficient property that you’ve always wanted. However, installing the insulation in your home is another story. When it comes to installing an insulating material, you need to be precise. If you install the eShield™ imperfectly, you won’t be able to reap all its benefits.
