Questions & Answers
1. How does Green Attic Barrier work?
Insulation only slows down heat loss or heat gain. Green Attic
Barrier reflects heat back into your home during the winter and
reflects heat out in the summer.
2. How can Green Attic Barrier
keep my home warmer in the winter months?
Just like wrapping a baked potato in aluminum foil keeps the potato
warmer longer by holding in heat, covering your attic insulation
with Green Attic Barrier holds heat in your home.
3. How can Green Attic Barrier
keep my house cooler in the summer months?
Green Attic Barrier is like a space suit. Green
Attic Barrier reflects the sun's heat before it can warm up the
insulation in your attic. When the insulation stays cooler, your
home will too!
4. I already have plenty of
insulation. Do I really need Green Attic Barrier?
Yes - Regardless of how much insulation you
have in your attic, adding Green Attic Barrier will save on heating
and cooling expenses and keep you and your family much more
comfortable. Green Attic Barrier savings in heating and cooling cost
can vary from 25% to 40%.
5. Isn’t foil faced fiberglass
just as good as Green Attic Barrier?
No - The foil on fiberglass is in direct
contact with the attic floor or ceiling. The foil does not reflect
heat because airspace is needed. The foil also has to be made of
paper-based products with silver coating which has minor
reflectability and breathability. Your home must breathe and vent in
order to prevent moisture build up from occurring.
