Here at Window World TX, you’ve heard us discuss the major benefits of energy-efficient windows. When properly sealed and installed, efficient windows can save you major bucks on your energy bill. If your monthly bill hits at around $200 dollars now, investing in energy-efficient windows could save you nearly $800 a year! But if you’re looking for another way to boost your home comfort while decreasing your energy usage, look up. No, really! When’s the last time you looked around in your attic?
Insulating your attic floor with a radiant barrier is an easy way to keep your home cooler in spring and summer months. With standard insulation, heat can easily become trapped in your home. This heat can eventually find its way out of the attic and into your home – causing you to set and pay for lower temperatures. That’s where radiant barrier technology comes in. With radiant barrier attic floor insulation, there will be less strain on your comfort, your bank account and the environment.
Imagine a strong, dual sided barrier lining your attic floor. In the winter, it will stop heat from escaping through your roof. In the summer, it will reflect heat from the sun out and away. Using the same technology found in space blankets and fire blankets, radiant barrier attic floor insulation really works! For DIYers looking to decrease their energy bills and carbon footprint, this style of insulation is safe and easy to install yourself. If you have existing insulation, simply place the radiant barrier insulation right on top.
Teamed with energy-efficient windows, siding and a conscious effort to reduce energy waste at home, radiant barrier attic floor insulation can be the cherry on top of your “savings sunday.” Don’t forget to check out the rest of our blog for even more home energy efficiency tips.
