Advantages of Reflective Foil Insulation

To understand the benefits of reflective foil insulation, you need to have the basic understanding of how heat transfers in your house.

Heat transfers in three different ways. There is convection, conduction, and thermal radiation.

Convection

Convection is when heat is transferred via the air. When you turn on your fan, the machine moves the wind and creates a humid breeze that circulates around your home.

Conduction

This method occurs when heat travels between two solid objects; cooking is one example. When you turn on the burner, the heat that is emitted on its surface is transferred to the bottom of your pan making it possible to cook raw meat or soften hard vegetables.

Thermal Radiation

Heat transfers through electromagnetic waves. You can feel this type of heat transfer whenever you are standing next to a window during a hot summer day.

What is Reflective Foil Insulation?

Just like other insulation materials, reflective foil reduces the amount of heat that is penetrating your home. Unlike the other materials, however, reflective foil is best used against thermal radiation. This type of insulation prevents the heat from transferring from one place to another. So, when your roof is being hit by the sun’s heat waves, the barrier will block all passageways on your roof; therefore, stabilizing the temperature inside your home.

What are the Advantages of Reflective Foil Insulation?

Low Energy Cost

The more energy you use, the more you spend for your electrical cost. The leading cause of high energy consumption is to regulate the temperature in your home during the seasons of winter and summer. When it is too hot, you can’t resist turning on your fans and air conditioning units, and when it gets too cold you need to turn on your heaters just to get warm. With reflective foil insulation, you will reduce your electrical consumption during the summer seasons, thus, reducing your electrical consumption.

Beneficial to Your Health and Safety

Some insulation materials are made from substances that can cause allergic reactions and are not resistant to flames. With reflective foils, however, you do not have to worry about fibrous materials floating around your home. Reflective foil insulations are made from 20% of recycled plastic and are also created to be fire-retardant.

Creates a Comfortable Environment

Since reflective foil insulations reduce the amount of heat that enters your home, you will not have any problem getting through the summer months.
