Every year, thousands of Houston homeowners are throwing away thousands of dollars on unnecessary cooling and heating costs caused by faulty attic insulation! In fact, the lack of proper roofing insulation and ventilation can lead to temperature spikes of up to 25%.
This increase in the ambient temperature inside your home causes your air conditioning system to compensate for the excess heat – forcing it to work twice as hard and consume more energy. Given Houston’s climate, your home is exposed to considerable heat from the sun. This accounts for much of the heat you experience indoors. Unfortunately, regular insulation alone cannot completely prevent heat from being transferred into your living space. A significant amount of heat is bound to reach your home.
Fortunately, there is radiant barrier insulation. Unlike regular insulation that slows down the transfer of heat, the radiant barrier resists the transfer of heat by reflecting it. Without the added heat, the ambient temperature in your home is significantly lowered.
