eShield Multilayer Reflective Thermal Foil Insulation
If you’re looking to add a radiant barrier to your home, you might want to consider eShield multilayer reflective foil insulation instead. eShield is a revolutionary new product that can help you slash your heating and cooling cost by up to 25 percent. Utilizing the latest emission-blocking technology developed by NASA, eShield reflects an astounding 97 percent of all radiant heat transfer, which is the number one cause of home energy waste. There are three forms of energy transfer that cause homes to waste energy – conduction, convection, and radiation. Traditional R-value insulation does an adequate job at stopping both conduction and convection, but fails to address emission. Luckily, eShield boasts the industry’s highest E-value rating, which measures the ability to block emission. Plus, as a retrofit product that is installed like a radiant barrier, eShield can be added on top of traditional R-value insulation, forming the most comprehensive energy-blocking barrier imaginable. When your home is protected from all three forms of heat transfer, you’ll be able to realize maximum energy efficiency and cost savings.
Just like a radiant barrier, eShield can be installed in virtually every area of your home, including attics, walls, floors, crawl spaces, lofts, garages, basements, ceilings, and more. Additionally, when you choose to install eShield,you not only get the cost-saving benefits of lower energy bills, but you can also qualify for certain federal energy tax credits.
Unlike radiant barrier products, eShield is a true insulation that features a center core composed of high-density fiberglass. It also has a permeability rating of 13, meaning it helps prevent mildew and other forms of moisture damage. Furthermore, eShield has a class-A fire rating, contains no allergens, and won’t off-gas like other radiant barrier and insulation products. eShield also doesn’t require any wire to help hold it in place. Additionally, eShield is also an extremely cost-effective solution to your home’s energy-wasting problems, as adding just one layer has been shown to be more effective at blocking radiant heat transfer than installing an additional five inches of fiberglass insulation.
