Attic Insulation for Homeowners in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, St. Augustine & Communities Along Florida’s First Coast
It’s no secret that attic insulation helps to regulate the temperature of a home, but not all insulation is created equally. As technology has improved over the years, so has the quality of insulation. Traditional fiberglass attic insulation has always had high R-value, and that’s helpful. A higher R-value means the insulation protects against heat transfer through conduction (heat passed through solid objects) and convection (heat passed through the air). However, a great deal of heat can also be passed through radiant emission, or radiation. This means the sun’s radiation beating down on your roof is also a major factor in the heat entering your home, and energy you’re losing as your air conditioner works to cool everything down. By installing attic insulation that has a high E-value – such as radiant barrier, reflective, or foil insulation – you can protect your home from this third type of heat transfer and dramatically reduce your energy costs.
At Green Machine, our attic insulation maximizes energy savings for homeowners in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, St. Augustine, and surrounding areas. We install products that incorporate state-of-the-art technologies aimed at offering greater protection from heat transfer into and out of your home, which keeps your home more comfortable.
The two different types of attic insulation installed by Green Machine are:
- eShield™ Multi-Layer Reflective Insulation – This foil type of insulation has a center core of high-density fiberglass. It’s designed to work with, not replace, your existing insulation in order to give your home superior energy efficiency.
- eShield™ Super Green Eco Insulation – This blown-in fiberglass insulation is made from 100 percent recycled content, is naturally fire-resistant, and provides optimal energy-efficiency benefits.
Working together, these specific types of insulation not only block conductive and convective heat transfer, but also block radiant heat transfer as well.
