The 3 Best Types of Insulation for Making Your Home Energy Efficient

Simply because our name is Paradigm Roofing doesn’t mean that we don’t also specialize elsewhere, such as directly under your roof. The proper insulation can go a long way in making your home energy efficient. There are three specific types of insulation that we recommend for saving the environment and lowering the cost of future energy bills.

1. Radiant Barrier Insulation

Radiant barrier insulation has been proven to reduce your home’s ceiling heat gain by as much as roughly 40 percent, which can equal almost 20 percent in savings on your future energy bills. In the summer, the insulation reflects heat sizzling from the sun. Then it keeps you warm during the frigid winter by trapping heat in your home.

2. Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in insulation has a higher R-rating than many other options and also performs better than several other common types of insulation. You’ll be making your home energy efficient while saving the environment by opting for an insulation that’s made from cellulose, which is comprised of recycled newspaper.

3. Spray Foam Insulation

The great thing about spay foam is that it acts as both insulation and an air sealant, which seals in your home’s warmed and cooled air. The EPA’s Energy Star program estimates that you can save up to approximately 20 percent on your monthly utility bills with the help of spray foam insulation. This particular type of insulation can also help to extend the life of your HVAC system since it does not have to work as hard to reproduce the air that’s lost through holes and gaps in your home.
