Summertime Energy Efficiency in Nashville, TN
When the temperatures are in the extremes, either high or low, it can motivate many people to begin to look for more and better ways to be energy efficient in their homes and everyday lives. Energy efficiency is important, not just for our wallets, but also for the environment in general. The fewer resources and the less energy we use getting the things that we need, the better—because the more we have for the future.
So what are some ways you can increase your energy efficiency this summer? Glad you asked!
- Obviously, if you do not yet have radiant barrier technology in your house, strongly consider it, and call Attic Barrier Insulation for a free consultation! The best part about radiant barrier technology is that once it is installed, no valuable resources are exhausted for it to do its job. It works all on its own to stabilize the temperature in your home, and keep essential areas appropriately cool or warm.
- Make sure you have a professional come out and check the sealants of your windows, doors, duct work, and other prime spaces for losing cool and warm air. You can have the most energy efficient cooling system in the state, but if your sealants are faulty, all that cool air will still be escaping. Garages are also a notorious culprit for energy loss, and Attic Barrier Insulation can outfit them with insulation that ensures that the cool air stays in and the hot air stays out during these warmer months.
- Keep your thermostat at a reasonable temperature, and refrain from adjusting it too often. When you are constantly adjusting your thermostat, it has to work harder to keep up with the new settings and will use more energy. Think of it like starting and restarting a car over and over again, rather than just keeping it running. You would not do that, so try not to adjust the thermostat too often.
- Look into a water heater wrap. Even in the summer most people take hot showers, and a water heater wrap like this one is a very affordable way to increase the energy efficiency of your water heater without making any major or costly improvements.
These are just a few of the many ways you can save time, money, and sweat this summer by investing in a few energy-saving methods for your home. If you are interested in making radiant barrier technology a part of that plan, give us a call today!

Traditional Solutions to Cooling Problems in Middle Tennessee
Now that summer is in full swing, the temperatures are rising steadily and the humidity that we all love so much in the South, has settled on middle Tennessee. If you have cooling problems in your home, now is the time when you are really beginning to feel them, and you may be wondering what the best solution is to keep you and your family cool this summer. Let us take a look at some of the traditional solutions to cooling problems and see how they stack up.
You could add more fiber insulation. Fiber insulation can cost as little as $1.75 to $2.50 per square foot, but although it is somewhat cost-effective, fiber insulation is very likely what caused the problem in the first place. Calling an insulation company and having them add extra layers throughout your house is a hassle that is really just putting a band aid on a bigger problem.
You could call the heat and air company. They will come out and do an inspection, and provided that your air conditioning unit is in good working order, they may give you a couple of options: get a bigger air conditioning unit, or install a second unit for double the power. Depending on the structure of your home, they may even suggest adding duct work for increased air flow. But these additions can cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the extra power they will use each month that will end up reflected on your utility bill.
You could replace all your windows. If you are having cooling problems because your windows are inefficient, you could replace them all with double-paned storm windows. Most homes have anywhere from fourteen to eighteen windows, and bigger homes can have upwards of thirty, so this solution may cost anywhere from $7,000-$12,000.
You could have an insulation company who does radiant barrier on the side, install it in your home. Yes, some insulation companies out there do have radiant barrier technology on hand. They are not necessarily professionally trained on it, and it is oftentimes more of an afterthought, but they do have the technology. If you go this route you run the risk of incorrect and inefficient installation, and you may have to go back later and have someone else fix it. Not only that, but these companies tend to charge much more for radiant barrier technology than Attic Barrier Insulation does.
You could get radiant barrierfrom Attic Barrier Insulation! This is one of the best things you can do for yourself, your home, your family, and your wallet this summer. Radiant barrier technology is all we do, and we are completely professionally trained for a perfect installation every time. We charge less than those other companies, and the return on your investment is lower energy bills and added value to the home, which is hard to underestimate. Radiant barrier technology is completely affordable and will keep your home cool this summer without racking up your utility bills.

Free Estimates with Attic Barrier Insulation
At Attic Barrier Insulation, every estimate we do is 100% completely free, given in writing, and good till the completion of the job. Many contractors do estimates with a 30- or 60-day expiration date, and if potential clients come back to them after the pre-set window of time, the contractor tends to raise the price. But that is NOT how we do business at Attic Barrier Insulation. We will not raise the price on you halfway through the job, and we will see it through to the end.
The reason we always do free estimates is that every home is different, and the specific application of the radiant barrier technology in each home is different, too. We primarily place the radiant barrier insulation in one of two places: the attic or the crawl space. But every attic is different. There are flat and vaulted ceilings, different types of flooring, bonus storage rooms, and more: likewise with crawl spaces. There is a unique use for radiant barrier insulation in each and every situation!
If you are a homeowner, how do you know if radiant barrier insulation is right for you?
- Do you have a room that’s too hot in the summer or two cold in the winter? A second story or a bonus room?
- Do you have high cooling and heating bills?
- Are you trying to sell your home soon and want to add value to it to ensure you get the price you want in the time frame you want?
If the answer to any of those questions is a resounding “Yes!” then a free estimate is the place to start. We enjoy explaining how radiant barrier insulation may be a fantastic solution for you and your home. We will be able to tell you not only what it would cost but also what it would save you in the long run on heating and cooling bills and other maintenance costs associated with extreme temperatures.

Why You Should Couple Radiant Barriers with Fiberglass Insulation
As summer approaches, many people begin to build new houses and house hunt for ones on the market. With these purchases many things have to be considered such as electrical work, paint choices, and installing insulation. Insulation is an important part of houses and attics as it resists the transfer of heat from the outside of the house from hot to cold.
Fiberglass and porous insulation is a must for houses, especially with attics and bonus rooms. However, at approximately $2.50/square foot you don’t want to have to replace it as it becomes older. Older insulation gets more packed which makes it easier for the heat to permeate through. In addition to becoming thinner, it is also extremely affected by moisture. A typical household leak can cause serious damage to this material as a 1.5% change in moisture results in a 36% decrease in performance. If you had this decrease in performance you would need to replace all of the insulation present in the building to gain full performance levels.
With radiant barriers, you don’t need to worry about replacing the existing fiberglass material. Radiant barriers run the buyer $1.75/square foot. This is $.75 less than your average fiberglass insulation. The radiant barrier is installed on the house in addition to the fiberglass insulation. This barrier is not affected by humidity and leaks, which means that you would never have to replace it! The amount of money saved is incredible, as you won’t have to deal with replacement insulation. With radiant barriers you are buying insulation insurance to protect yourself from problems with the fiberglass insulation in the future.

What Is Radiant Barrier Insulation and Why Should You Have It?
Upon first hearing about radiant barrier insulation, you may be thinking to yourself, “My house already has insulation! Why should I add more?” Well, radiant barrier insulation is no standard insulation. The technology behind it was actually originally developed for astronauts in outer space. But now we put it in people’s homes over and around their existing insulation. Why?
Standard insulation works by slowing the passage of heat from Point A to Point B, so in the summer time it slows heat from getting in, and in the winter time it slows heat from getting out. Radiant barrier insulation, on the other hand, actually reflects heat back. In the summer, it reflects it back to the outdoors, and in the winter, it reflects it back into your house. This method is actually twice as effective! Here are a few of the other amazing reasons to consider radiant barrier insulation for your home:
- Most people save up to 25% or more on the average heating and cooling bills!
- It keeps the living area at a uniform temperature, rather than having one room or area that is colder or hotter than all the others.
- It doubles the effect of whatever insulation you currently have.
- There’s less arguing about changing the thermostat when the whole house is the same temperature!
- Your heating and air units don’t have to work as hard, and therefore their lifespan is extended by years or more.
- Protects the most vulnerable part of your house when it comes to losing energy—the attic.
- It’s the most effective improvements you can make on your home for the investment dollar.
- It requires no maintenance and no repairs.
- Unlike standard insulation, there is no compacting, settling, cracking, bleeding, or delamination.
- With a perfect flame spread of ZERO, it’s not a fire hazard.
- Because it’s not porous, it is resistant to the growth of fungus or mold.
- It increases the value of your home when compared to other homes without it.
- Some of our radiant barrier insulation materials work as a moisture barrier as well.
- There are a million different applications—attic, basement, crawl space, garage, and more!
- Installation is simple and overseen by the owner, every time.
- The material’s effectiveness is not impacted by surrounding moisture.
And these are just a few of the many reasons why radiant barrier insulation is a fantastic addition to any home. If saving money and increasing the value of your property sounds like something you may be interested in, give us a call today! And don’t forget, if you already have radiant barrier insulation, tell all your friends—we offer a referral fee and love helping more people save money and improve their standard of living.

Facts and Figures
Attic Barrier Insulation radiant barrier is used as insulation against radiant heat transfer. It can be used to its greatest advantage in instances where radiation is the predominant means of heat transfer. The pure aluminum surface of all Attic Barrier Insulation Radiant Barriers has insulating properties. This occurs in two ways:
(1) Attic Barrier Insulation is an excellent reflector of all long wave radiant heat that strikes it—reflecting up to 97% of all radiant heat.
(2) Attic Barrier Insulation will re-radiate only 3% of heat in which it comes in close physical contact, compared with the approximate 90% re-radiation of ordinary building materials at the same temperature.
Attic Barrier Insulation Radiant Barrier can be installed on top of your present insulation like a blanket or stapled under your rafters or crawl space. Regardless of how much insulation you have in your attic, adding Radiant Barrier will save on your heating and cooling expense and keep you much more comfortable. Up to 25% or more in energy savings can be realized depending on climate, building configuration, materials used, site, family size, and lifestyle, etc.

Rick S. - Nashville House Painters
Kromer installed his product in one of my customers homes. They were having a problem with hot/cold expansion of the dry wall board joints in a large tray ceiling. The cracks have been gone for several years and it doesn't look like they are coming back. Seeing is believing!
James and Mitzi W. - Hendersonville, TN
We've realized a 25% difference on our utility bill and are very happy with the savings. The barrier is saving us a significant amount of money and our home is more comfortable now as well. The living space is cooler in the Summer and warmer in the Winter.
Jeff P. Antioch, Tennessee
My electric bill was going through the roof! ABI - Radiant Barrier came in and installed radiant barrier. I was going to put more insulation in my attic but obviously I didn't need to do that because the barrier has dropped my kilowatt hour usage consistently 6 months in a row. Give Tennessee Barrier a shot and you will save money and add comfort to your home.
