Most traditional home insulation systems in Chicago are designed to protect against convection and conduction—but they don’t do anything to stop the third major source of residential energy loss: radiant heat transfer from the sun.
That’s where Compass Window and Door comes in!
We’ve partnered with eShield, an innovative home insulation manufacturer, to bring radiant barrier insulation to homes across Chicago. This comprehensive system blocks up to 97% of solar heat and can be installed for effective insulation in nearly any area of your home:
- Interior Walls
... and more!
Benefits of Radiant Barrier Insulation
Without radiant barrier insulation, you may be spending tons of extra money on heating and cooling without even realizing it. That’s because the R-value—the traditional way of measuring home insulation—doesn’t account for solar heat transfer.
With eShield, you’ll block out radiant heat and multiply the impact of your existing home insulation! As a result, you’ll see:
- Energy Savings: Using multiple layers of thick, specially engineered foil, radiant barrier insulation blocks solar heat gain and lowers the load on your home’s cooling system.
- Cost Savings: The reduced need for energy will translate into a noticeable impact on your monthly cost of energy use.
- In-Home Comfort: Because the sun will no longer be warming your home unnecessarily, interior rooms will stay at a more comfortable temperature.
Know what's even better?
For many homes in Chicago, radiant barrier insulation can be easily added to your existing home insulation system! The fully trained, in-house installers at Compass Window and Door can add this reflective foil system to nearly any home with minimal time and money investment.
