Cap City Home is excited to introduce Attic Blanket, an attic energy barrier that is guaranteed to make your home more energy efficient. Most people don’t realize their attic is improperly insulated, but they do realize that their heating and cooling bills are skyrocketing. Attic Blanket is the most cost-effective home improvement you can make to lower your
heating and cooling bill.
Do you have trouble keeping certain rooms in your home at a comfortable temperature? If you do it is likely a substantial amount of energy used to heat and cool your house is escaping right over your head. The federal government warns that 45 million homes (including 1.2 million new homes) have inadequate amounts of insulation. Designed to work in harmony with the
existing insulation in your home, Cap City Attic Blanket uses NASA technology to create a more energy efficient home. By using this technology, Attic Blanket reflects the harsh outdoor temperatures of both Winter and Summer, providing a pleasant indoor environment. Never again will you have to avoid your favorite room when it becomes too hot or too cold.
Installing Cap City Attic Blanket can reduce your home's heating and cooling costs. Cap City Attic Blanket reflects up to 98% of the sun's heat away from your home's existing insulation. Your home's comfort level will also increase, as Cap City Attic Blanket eliminates temperature extremes between rooms and floors.
Here are some facts:
•The US Department of Energy says that over 100 million US homes are under-insulated
•42% of home energy loss happens through the roof
•The US Department of Energy recommends your attic have an R-value of R38- R60, and most homes fall short of this

Attic Blanket Space Technology
A space suit can be 310°F on the side facing the sun and -290°F on the opposite side. But a flexible radiant barrier laminated into the fabric allows the space suit to reflect the searing heat of the sun and retain the body’s warmth on the dark side. Your home is like a space suit. It should keep heat in when the weather is cold – and keep it out when the weather is hot. Attic Blanket is made of the same radiant barrier technology used by NASA
in space. It can produce dramatic results in your attic, and bring your heating and cooling bills down to earth.
Attic Blanket Installation
Attic Blanket- attic energy barrier is highly versatile. The configuration of your attic and your relative heating and cooling requirements will determine the best installation method. Our installation experts are trained to install Attic Blanket- attic energy barrier to best suit your home.
Department of Energy tests show that Attic Blanket- attic energy barrier can deliver more energy savings than twelve inches of additional fiberglass insulation.
Attic Blanket- Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why don’t building codes specify E-values as well as R-values?
A: In the last century, the only cost-effective insulation for the home was mass insulation like fiberglass, cellulose and foam that reduced heat transfer by convection and conduction. The “R-value” was the measure of how good a job those insulators did. Yet R-value measures only the smallest part of residential heat transfer. E-value is the measure of emissive, radiant heat transfer, the principle source of energy loss. New technologies make it
practical to achieve extremely low emissive in window glass and in a reflective film ideal for the attic. As these low-E technologies advance, the codes will catch up and E-value will replace R-value as the primary measure of energy efficiency.
Q: Will Attic Blanket installed in my attic trap mildew-causing moisture in my ceiling?
A: Attic Blanket- is perforated to allow vapor to escape the housing envelope – it will not contribute to mildew growth in your home.
Q: Will Attic Blanket create a fire hazard in my attic?
A: Attic Blanket- Attic Energy Barrier is fire-resistant – it’s less combustible than the structure to which it attaches. Of course, like almost any material, it will melt and eventually burn if exposed to an open flame.
Q: Can I get a rebate for installing Attic Blanket?
A: Attic Blanket-Attic Energy Barrier is Department of Energy approved. This is the gold standard in energy efficiency and qualifies for most federal, state and energy company rebates. Check with your Attic Blanket rep to learn what’s available in your area.
