Summer is around the corner, insulation is critical to keeping your expensive air-conditioned air from leaking out and lower a family's energy budget.
Foil insulation structures are Aluminum Foil/ Alu Foil Laminated Fiber Glass ect. By using a foil insulation on the roof or below the ceiling, reflects the solar energy and stops heat absorption. This help to reduce electrical consumption of air conditioners and high-performance insulation could cut home cooling costs by as much as 20 percent, according to Energy Star.
