Insulating Paint!

Paint the interior wall of your home and insulate at the same time. What is it?
It is an additive that you add to either interior or exterior paint and roll it
on creating an invisible layer of insulation. This process was invented by NASA.

It keeps warm air out in the summer and the warmth outside in the winter. It
adds a 50% increase to the reflective R value of a house. In the long run, it
can save you money on your energy consumption.

All you do is add some powder in with your regular paint, stir it up really
well and just paint whatever surface you are working on. If you add the powder
to the top coat of the paint, it will lighten it up one shade and take it from
a gloss to a semi-gloss. However, you can put it in the primer coat and there
will be no effect.

The secret is microscopic ceramic spheres filled with air. When the paint dries,
they form a barrier that insulates your home so you will use less heat.

Most homeowners have seen a 20% reduction in their energy bills. Now that is
reason enough to paint the whole interior/exterior with this additive.

So,if you are looking to reduce your energy bills, give this a try!
