EcoSmart – Radiant Barrier Insulation
Are you researching the various insulation types to see what will work best for your home insulation needs? Radiant Barrier, while an effective solution some areas, it is not always the best choice for a Connecticut home. We have found that installing a radiant barrier in most homes in Connecticut will make a very small impact on your home’s comfort and energy consumption. While it may lead to some very small energy savings, for most northeastern homes, it could take a hundred years or more for the radiant barrier installation to pay for itself in energy savings.
Radiant barrier is effective in reducing cooling costs in warmer climates like the Southeast U.S. Not so in Connecticut, in fact is very, very rare that installing a radiant barrier in an existing home in Connecticut will lead to significant energy savings.
