Uses For Bubble Foil Insulation

Cindy Teruya
When it comes to home and office insulation, people have a number of different choices. A great new option is available in the form of bubble foil insulation, which has proven to be a great product.

One of the major challenges of insulation is reaching the required R value, which determines the strength of the insulation. This new insulation meets and exceeds the R value expectations. The bubble design forms a special layer that works as the ideal temperature barrier.

Typically, people use bubble foil insulation for many different purposes. For instance, this type of insulation is perfect for walls with or without masonry, crawl spaces, pipes, concrete slabs, garage doors, ducts, wine cellars, water heaters, and so on. Therefore, this type of insulation works for much more than just ceilings or walls.

This insulation makes the home and office far more energy efficient. On average, using this type of insulation keeps rooms 10 degrees cooler than what a person would normally see with Styrofoam insulations.

Whether building a new home or updating current insulation, bubble foil insulation should be a top choice. Its versatility makes it one of the most useful insulation variants on the market. IPC Pack is a great source of affordable insulation. This company is family-owned and operated, taking great pride in what they have to offer.
