Insulation, especially attic insulation, in conjunction with air sealing and a radiant barrier work together to keep your Austin, Georgetown or Pflugerville, Texas area home more comfortable and energy efficient year-round.
The Importance of Air Sealing, Attic Insulation and a Radiant Barrier
Your home’s building envelope consists of the pressure boundary and thermal boundary. The pressure boundary needs to be air sealed to keep air from moving in and out, since air can carry unwanted heat (or cold air), moisture and pollution with it. The thermal boundary consists of insulation and works to keep unwanted heat (or cold air) from entering and exiting.
A key area of your home that, if not properly insulated and air sealed, can cause extensive energy loss, is the attic. Insulating your attic with spray foam insulation and fiberglass, air sealing and installing a radiant barrier on your roof will improve energy efficiency and result in significant savings. Your home’s conditioned air will stop escaping, keeping you more comfortable.
