Proper home and business insulation in Dallas is essential for the sake of having balanced cooling and an optimized energy bill. We can think of many things you can do with your money than giving it to your utility company. At Affordable Radiant Barrier, we specialize in Radiant Barrier installations, attic insulation, and home ventilation upgrades in the Dallas Metroplex.
While Radiant Barrier alone can save up to 20-40% in energy costs by reflecting radiant heat, insulation works in conjunction with the barrier to provide even greater energy savings. When insulation is properly installed alongside a Radiant Barrier, the two components work synergistically to create a more efficient thermal envelope for your home. Insulation is essential for minimizing heat transfer through conduction and convection, which are additional pathways for heat to enter or escape your home. By adding insulation, we address these forms of heat transfer in addition to the radiant heat that the Radiant Barrier reflects. The combination creates a comprehensive solution that significantly reduces the overall heat load on your home, resulting in more efficient cooling and heating performance.
Radiant Barrier will give you the fastest return on investment that can be added to your home when compared to new windows or siding. Radiant Barrier has an average return on investment between 3-5 years while new windows or siding can take an average of 15-20 years. The addition of Radiant Barrier will increase the value of your home exponentially.
It keeps warm air in your home from rising into your cold attic in the winter. Warm air naturally rises and without any insulation, you’ll have a hard time keeping your house warm during the cold days in the winter. In the summer, proper insulation helps keep the hot air that fills up your attic from leaking into your home. This can drastically reduce the cost of cooling your home and increase the efficiency of your air conditioning system. The temperature inside your attic can reach up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and even if a little bit gets into your home, it can drastically affect the cost of cooling the inside of your home. Attic insulation is imperative to increasing the efficiency of your home and reducing energy consumption.
Affordable Radiant Barrier utilizes only the best products for your insulation needs. Another method of insulating your attic is our blow in loose fill Fiberglass insulation. Instead of laying batt, or roll, our Insulation Blowing Machine conditions the Blow in Fiberglas Insulation by fluffing it along the length of the hose, adding millions of tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power. Our Fiberglass insulation is guaranteed not settle more than 5% over its lifetime, and will maintain the same energy-saving level over time, keeping your home comfortable for years to come.
