Radiant Barrier Insulation Improves Energy Efficiency

More and more homebuyers are in the market for a green house – a home that meets certain requirements for energy efficiency. No matter the price point of the house, both buyers and owners are seeking cost-savings in the form of green appliances and additions. One option is to install radiant barrier insulation in Dallas. At MEIS Roofing, we provide a number of solutions for homeowners looking to save money.

 Up on the Roof

In a report issued by McGraw-Hill Construction, green homes comprised just 17 percent of the market in 2011. That number is expected to more than double by 2016. Builders are seeing more requests for things like radiant barrier insulation. This type of insulation can lower the heat build-up in a home’s attic, reducing the temperature of the home overall.

Rick Quinn, a builder in Verdae, S.C., said he installed a radiant barrier roof decking on a Friday morning. When he went back later that day in warm, South Carolina weather, the home’s temperature had not changed – and he had not even installed a cooling system yet. That is a result of the insulation sealing the roof system, which leads to cooler homes and reduced energy bills.
