In the building and construction industry the efficiency of insulation is rated in terms of thermal resistance (heat flow), called R-value. In an optimal attic system and climate the R-value of Sol-Blanket Insulation™, a reflective insulation is 16. With that said every home is different and their are several factors that will contribute to the R-Value – both positively and negatively. Not just the type of materials the insulation is made of.
What is Sol-Blanket Insulation™?
Sol-Blanket Insulation™ is a NASA inspired technology that is a double sided radiant barrier, insulation and a protection barrier and is proprietary to Smart Energy Today, Inc.™. The U.S. Department of Energy says radiant barriers are “designed to work in your attic to keep some of the heat from the sun away from your living space”. To maximize the effectiveness of your current insulation as well as add R-value it is recommended that a radiant barrier is used to cover traditional insulation. An attic fan further improves the energy system.
The statement above from the U.S. Department of Energy applies to single-sided radiant barriers or a radiant barrier with only one layer of foil. Sol-Blanket Insulation™ has two layers of foil which act as radiant barriers with reinforcement that acts as insulation between the two layers of foil. Because the reflective insulation is double sided the insulation blocks radiant heat from above or below the insulation making it effective at keeping heat out during hot weather and keeping it in the house during cold weather.
A few things that make Sol-Blanket Insulation™an excellent choice:
- Prevents 97% of radiant heat transfer
- Does not promote mold or mildew
- Does not provide for nesting of rodents, bugs or birds
- 19dba contact noise reduction
- UV resistance
