One of the products we use that helps make your Fulton Home an Energy Star v3 Certified Home is Lousiana Pacific Tech Shield Radiant Barrier.
It might not sound fun and glamorous, but this innovative product helps block radiant heat in the roof from entering the attic. What does this do for you? It helps keep the attic cooler, lowering energy costs and making the home more comfortable. That sounds better, right? LP TechShield is the only radiant barrier sheathing that features patented VaporVents™ technology, which allows it to dry more quickly from construction moisture than other radiant barriers.
LP TechShield offers a variety of homeowner benefits: potentially reduces tonnage of the HVAC system, cuts monthly air conditioning bills up to 17%, and may qualify for utility rebates.
As a bonus: Several other factors make LP TechShield Radiant Barrier an environmentally friendly building material. Their manufacturing process uses wood certified underSustainable Forestry Initiative® standards. That wood comes from small, fast growing trees, and the entire log is used. This means less waste and more efficient use of resources. Plus, LP TechShield Radiant Barrier contains no urea-formaldehyde, and they use only low-emitting, safe resins as a binder.
The bottom line is, it’s one of the many elements we use that makes your home more efficient and better for the environment!
