Energy Efficiency of Your Home
A well-insulated home is one step closer to becoming truly energy-efficient because it allows property owners to conserve energy and cut back on their electricity and fuel bills. At Expo Home Improvement, we partner with eShield® to deliver total home efficiency goals.
The team at eShield™ is committed to helping you increase the energy efficiency of your home with our full line of attic insulation products and services. 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, making it more difficult and expensive to regulate the temperature of your home. Traditional insulation does a sufficient job combating two of the most common types of heat flow, conductive and convective heat, but is ineffective against radiant - a third type of heat transfer that comes from the sun. This is where the eShield™ radiant barrier insulation comes in. This state-of-the-art attic insulation reflects 97 percent of all radiant heat transfer - a leading cause of home energy waste.
Reflective Foil Insulation – Thermal Protection for
Roofs, Attics, &Walls
Able to stop more than 97-percent of radiant heat, eShield™ multilayer reflective foil insulation is an exceptionally efficient and innovative solution to thermal insulation needs. Most types of insulation protect against conduction and convection, measured by R-values.
However, they fall short of eShield™ when it comes to E-value, which measures radiant heat transfer, the main source of lost heat in homes. By coupling eShield™ with existing home insulation, you can create a complete solution to all types of heat transfer.

Overall Spending & Impact On the Environment.
Rather than spend hundreds or thousands of dollars replacing or padding the fiberglass in your attic, simply install eShield™ multilayer foil insulation over top. It works perfectly in conjunction with existing insulation and is actually capable of providing more savings than adding another whole foot of fiberglass! In addition to simple home updates, eShield™ is exactly the right type of product for a greenovation, allowing you to reduce your overall spending and your impact on the environment.
Attic Insulation Isn’t Complete Without eShield™
Did you know that attics are the top culprits when it comes to heat loss in your home? Although many homes have fiberglass or other types of attic insulation, they still don't fully protect you from the outside temperature - or from high energy bills. One cause for expensive power bills that many homeowners don't consider is depleted R-value.
As insulation ages, its ability to resist heat decreases along with its effectiveness. In addition, insulation that's been subject to moisture or has compressed over time does not provide its labeled R-value. So, unless you've recently updated your building's attic insulation, you probably don't have as much protection as you thought you did.
Another reason for energy loss through the attic is emission, or radiant heat transfer, which is essentially the transfer of heat through empty space, rather than by direct contact. If you've ever felt the warmth of the sun on your face, then you've experienced heat transfer by emission. Adding attic insulation such as fiberglass or cellulose doesn't fully address this type of transfer because they protect mostly against convection and conduction, two other types of heat transfer.
Reflect Heat with
Your roof is constantly subject to the heat of the sun during summer and the cold of the rain, snow, and winds during other seasons, making it very difficult to keep heat from flowing between the inside and out. After a certain point, regular insulation simply can't absorb any more heat, rendering it basically useless. Rather than just absorbing the heat, eShield™ actually reflects it, helping you keep the temperature of your home independent from the outside environment. By addressing all three types of energy transfer, your attic insulation can help lower your utility bills and keep your family cozy.
