Uses for Low-E Insulation

Low-E Insulation Uses

Attic - Much of the heat entering or leaving your house does so through the attic. Adding Low-E Insulation in your attic helps to keep your house cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter. It is an ideal radiant barrier to supplement the insulation already in place.

Basement - Keeping your basement cooler in the summer and warmer in winter means using Low-E Insulation. It performs as a vapor barrier, resists fungus and mold and is uneffective by dampness. Protecting your basement with Low-E Insulation will give you a more comfortable place to play or work while lowering your heating bill.

Concrete Pad - Put Slab-Shield in place before the slab is poured. Slab-Shield will stop the slab from seeking ground temperature.

Crawl Spaces - When Low-E Insulation is installed in crawl spaces both heat gain and heat loss will be stopped. Fuel cost will be reduced and comfort will increase.

Hot Water Heater - Adding Low-E Insulation to your hot water heater will add extra efficiency. The concept is simple - you are adding a thermos bottle to retain heat.

Metal Building - Using Low-E Insulation will reduce the amount of time it takes to insulate a building. It will not leak after the roof and walls are applied. When the insulation is left exposed reduction in lighting requirements is possible when using double faced products.

Radiant Floor - Radiant heating provides whole floor comfort. Low-E Insulation is a great enhancement to any radiant floor application. The insulation is tough yet pliable and easy to install.

Post Frame Building - Using Low-E Insulation will reduce the amount of time it takes to insulate a building. It will not leak after the roof and walls are applied. When the insulation is left exposed reduction in lighting requirements is possible when using double face products.

Side Wall - Low-E Insulation on the exterior or interior of the walls creates a vapor barrier, reduces air infiltration plus it insulates and it is a radiant barrier. Low-E Insulation can be used in conjunction with other forms of insulation

Carpet Pad - This is a way to do two jobs when carpeting your basement floor. So long as there is no radiant heat in the slab and you want to carpet using Therm-E Pad is the way to go. It becomes a thermal break between the slab and the air in the room while acting as the carpet pad.

Attic Floor - Adding a way to reduce radiant heat gain or loss in a house is as simple as rolling out Low-E Attic Floor. It will stop 97% of heat gain during the summer. It will do the same for any heat loss coming through the upper rooms ceilings. This product is also perforated allowing any moisture to wick out.
