Radiant Barrier Insulation Improves Energy Efficiency

Make your home a bit greener with radiant barrier insulation.

Today, more and more homeowners are in the market for an energy-efficient or green home. This is true across all price points, and it’s equally important for people looking for a new home and those who plan to stay in their current home. Here in the DFW area, one of the best options is to install a radiant barrier insulation. MEIS Roofing & Construction understands this, and we are here to help you save money.

Up on the Roof

The demand for green homes is unmistakable. McGraw-Hill Construction reports that green homes comprised only 17% of the market in 2011, but that number is expected to more than double by 2016. Because of this, builders are seeing more requests for things like radiant barrier insulation.

Radiant barrier insulation lowers the amount of heat buildup in a home’s access. The results can be dramatic. One builder in Verdae, SC, Rick Quinn, reports that he installed a radiant barrier in a home he was building in the morning, then left the jobsite for a time. When he came back, the home’s temperature hadn’t changed at all – and this was before he even installed a cooling system. The insulation sealing the roof system worked that well.

Imagine how well it will work for your home.

There are many types of radiant barrier insulation available, which is why it is critical that you have a professional help you make this decision and perform the installation. MEIS Roofing & Construction can help you find the right one for your home and make sure it’s installed the right way.
