Step 3 - Stop Radiant Heat Gain and Loss
Conductive heat flow is the kind of heat transfer that happens between objects that touch each other. For instance, the heat from the roof of your home can transfer to the adjoining walls. Convective heat flow is the type of heat transfer that occurs through the movement of fluids. For example, the warm air that infiltrates your home can circulate indoors. These types of heat transfer mechanisms can be effectively dealt with by installing blown-in insulation and by air sealing your home.
A third type of heat transfer called thermal radiation, however, does not require a medium to carry the heat. A good example of how it works is when the sun heats your home’s roof and the roof radiates the heat into your attic. Heat gain through thermal radiation can be reduced with the help of reflective insulation products like radiant barriers.
Reflective Foil Insulation – Thermal Protection for Roofs, Attics, & Walls
Able to stop more than 97-percent of radiant heat, our advanced foil insulation is a highly efficient and innovative solution to thermal insulation needs. Most types of insulation protect against conduction and convection, measured by R-values. However, they fall short of our technology when it comes to E-value, which measures radiant heat transfer, the main source of lost heat in homes. We specialize in creating important efficiency and cost savings by carefully revamping the following:
- Interior and exterior walls
- Virtually any other environment
