Are Insulating Paints the future?

May 22, 2009

I have recently been looking at insulating paints, and have been intrigued do these so called insulating paints actually work?

Alot of the companies that deal in this type of paint say they help save energy by reducing heat loss in the home hence saving your money on bills and helping the environment. These new innavotive insulating paints work by reflecting heat back in the room, which keeps your room warmer for longer.

The paint seems to have some type of ceramic hollow balls which help reflect heat back into the room, which means you probably get a rougher finish?

The question is, do they actually work? Are insulating paints the future for us?

    Those paints don’t block as much heat as the radiant barrier foil insulation
    products.  Read this:

    This is a very useful information for my husband who is going to re-paint our home this weekend. In doing so, he bought gallons of insulating and heat reflective paints from because he is convinced that using such paints to re-paint our home’s roof, interiors and exteriors will help us save energy and reduce our heating and cooling cost. As a housewife who deals with budgeting my husband’s monthly income, I think any kind of saving is worth the trouble.

Got something to say?
