Virginia Beach, VA (PressExposure) February 23, 2012 -- Hampton Roads' leading windows and siding provider, Beach Windows is known for its energy efficient products. In continuing with its efforts towards creating more energy efficient home improvement solutions, the company has come up with Low-E Housewrap. This is a whole new approach to insulation that blocks up to 97% of radiant heat leading to more energy efficient homes all the year round (much more than simply stopping wind drafts). Beach Windows & Siding is offering this as an insulation solution to its customers looking for more energy efficient homes.
A senior executive of the company elaborated on how the Low-E Housewrap works. He said, "A pure aluminum facing is heat bonded to one or both sides of closed cell polyethylene foam, then the product is pin perforated. This results in a housewrap that acts not only as a superior air infiltration barrier, effectively sealing up cracks or gaps in the external sheathing, but it also adds insulation to the exterior of the home blocking up to 97% of radiant heat. This results in better year round efficiency and comfort levels."
Beach Windows & Siding has further stated that the Low-E Housewrap is different from other traditional housewraps or insulating products as it is completely nontoxic. Another advantage is that the Low-E Housewrap is not impacted by initial exposure to the elements. In other words, the energy efficiency quotient of your home remains stable all the year round. The light weight insulation solution is very easy to install, and the skilled workmen at Beach Windows & Siding do it using only a staple gun and razor knife.
The Low-E energy efficient solutions are available for the separate portions of the house including the walls, roof and the attic. The company recommends Low-E Attic installation for those looking for quick energy savings. A senior executive of the company commented, "By installing Low-E Insulation under your rafters you're stopping the heat gain in the summer as well as helping to keep it in during the winter months. This also helps in areas where ice damming is a bad problem."
Beach Windows and Siding is excited by the fact that the insulation offer has become quite as popular as the company's range of windows and vinyl siding Virginia Beach residents have shown an enthusiastic initial response to the offer.
