Reflective insulation, radiant barriers pay off

Innovative Energy's AstroShield reflective insulation

With most of the U.S. still suffering from the record-breaking high temperatures, it seems only fitting to take a closer look at how reflective insulation and radiant barriers can help us keep cool and save money during the dog days of summer.

When radiant heat strikes the surface of a building the temperature of that surface increases as the radiant heat is absorbed. Mass insulation merely slows down the transfer of this heat to the interior of the building, but Innovative Energy’s reflective insulation and radiant barrier products feature highly reflective surfaces that can block up to 94 percent of radiant heat transfer. With this heat being reflected away from the building rather than absorbed, the amount of energy required to keep interior spaces cooler and more comfortable is significantly reduced.

Overall benefits of reflective insulation and radiant barrier products include:

  • Reduced energy consumption and costs
  • Improved interior comfort
  • Thin, lightweight products are easy and safe to install; no special equipment required
  • Products available for virtually any type of structure

Innovative Energy launches Arctic Package program for RV manufacturers

This hot box test demonstrates how the addition of R+HEATSHIELD radiant barrier enhances the ability of conventional mass insulation to reduce heat transfer.

Innovative Energy, Inc., an Indiana-based manufacturer of reflective insulation products, recently launched a program to support RV manufacturers who install its R+HEATSHIELD® radiant barrier in their RVs.

Arctic Package® is an example of a hybrid insulation system whereby the performance of conventional mass insulation used in RVs is enhanced by the addition of R+HEATSHIELD® radiant barrier. Innovative Energy plans to establish Arctic Package® as a feature RVers come to recognize as a symbol of energy efficiency and comfort in RVs, while also establishing it as a feature RV manufacturers recognize as marketable. The company will offer educational and promotional materials for manufacturers to pass along to consumers, and it will also conduct various efforts to build brand awareness among the RV community.

Above all, Innovative Energy will help RV manufacturers relay to their customers the benefits of having their RV outfitted with the Arctic Package®. With this program, consumers will understand exactly what they’re getting when they see a RV outfitted with the Arctic Package® – increased thermal protection that is going to help keep them more comfortable in extreme hot and cold climates, and save them money on their heating and cooling costs.

“We’ve already received positive feedback from the RV manufacturers that we’ve presented this program to. As we move forward with the launching of the Arctic Package® program, we expect support from manufactures and consumers to increase,” said Eric Baker, executive director of RV and technical for Innovative Energy.

How do reflective insulation products work in buildings?

Innovative Energy's astroECO reflective insulation

Radiant heat is one of the three ways that heat is transferred, and it is the primary mode of heat transfer in buildings. It occurs when infrared rays cross air spaces from one surface to another. Whereas mass insulation slows down heat transfer, reflective insulation and radiant barrier products feature a highly reflective film that can block up to 97 percent of radiant heat transfer, therefore improving overall thermal performance.

Reflective insulation products incorporate the insulating qualities of trapped air spaces in the core material sandwiched between the two reflective surfaces to create a material that reduces heat transfer. Radiant barriers typically come in sheets with a highly reflective surface on one or both sides, depending upon the application.

The main difference between a radiant barrier and a reflective insulation product relates to the way in which it is installed. Reflective insulations are typically installed within cavities that incorporate air spaces between the insulation and the cavity materials, as in a wall. Radiant barriers are typically installed with one reflective surface facing a large open air space, such as in an attic. To learn more, click here.

  • Reduced energy consumption and costs
  • Improved interior comfort
  • Thin and lightweight products
  • Easy and safe to install; no special tools or protective clothing required
  • Products available for virtually any structure

Innovative Energy employees embrace the spirit of giving

Innovative Energy employees begin to gather for their annual Christmas party. The employees raised more than $600 for a local family in need through a silent auction and donations.

The employees of Innovative Energy came together last week to raise more than $600 for a local family in need. Everyone from the production workers and office staff to the executive directors and the company’s president took part in a silent auction and then donated additional funds during the company’s Christmas party.

With the help of Lowell town officials, employees learned of a local family struggling to endure through financial hardships and the unexpected loss of the children’s mother. The funds will be used to provide Christmas gifts for the family, with the children’s primary request being for clothing. The silent auction raised $381, to which company employees added an additional $250 in personal donations.

This was the first time Innovative Energy conducted a fund-raising silent auction as part of its company Christmas party, but everyone was very pleased with the end result. The company plans to make this an annual event.

“This was more than just a company donation, it was kindhearted people coming together to help a neighbor,” Carl Kurek, an employee of Innovative Energy, said. “Everyone just really felt for this family and was happy, more than happy, to be able to offer them some assistance.”

Innovative Energy has been cemented in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland area since the company was formed in 1980. Its headquarters have been located in Lowell, Ind. since 1995. >From reflective insulation and radiant barriers to temperature-sensitive packaging, the company has been a leader in developing energy-conserving products through reflective technology.
