New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc. is proud to now offer its customers the exclusive eShield Perfect Attic Insulation System, to help alleviate the rising costs of heating and cooling their home.
Did you know that attics are one of the top offenders when it comes to energy loss in your home? Whether it’s in the dead of summer, and you feel like you just can’t get your home cool enough, or in the winter, when you always feel a tinge of cold, attics are a major part of these issues.
There are three types of heat flow – conductive, convective and radiation – that can cause an attic to become hot in the summer or lose heat in the winter, makes it more difficult and expensive to regulate the temperature of your home, and creates ice dams. The first two types of heat flow, conductive and convective, are a result of the temperature changes in the air, and hot/cool air leaking to and from the homes living space. The third, radiant heat transfer, is a product of the electromagnetic waves from the sun.
This is where the eShield radiant barrier starts to work. This state-of-the-art multi-layer thermal reflective radiant barrier reflects 97% of all radiant heat transfer – a leading cause of home energy waste. In addition to the radiant barrier, we offer a formaldehyde-free Johns Manville blown-in insulation, to bring your attic insulation up to R-38, approximately 15 inches, which is code for the state of New Jersey. Our fiberglass insulation is 100% recycled, and is the only insulation product guaranteed to remain at its original R-value. If at any point, as long as you own your home, your insulation fails to maintain it’s original R-value, our insulation team will refill your attic to the necessary level for free. The third component is our air sealing service, which seals the openings in your attic that connect to the living space. This helps prevent the transfer of hot/cold air from the attic to and from the living area.
