I'm wondering if any of you preparing to build, remodel, or repaint have considered using a paint additive or a paint designed to add some insulative value to a room? In essence the paint helps stop the transfer of heat through the wall aiding energy savings. Here is but one company that sells an additive. http://www.insuladd.com/product.html Info from that site: "InsuladdÂ® will greatly reduce heat loss (heat absorption) and heat gain from your home by decreasing the AMOUNT of heat that is absorbed by the walls, ceilings and roofs of your home. InsuladdÂ® will reduce heat absorption and keep heat out during the summer by making your house paint act as a heat barrier or radiant barrier. During the winter, it greatly reduces heat loss from your home and prevents it from migrating through your homes walls and ceilings and escaping to the cold outside air." and "The answer is paint that includes an insulating powder that originated at NASA. Widely used on commercial and residential structures, it transforms any color of paint into an environmentally friendly insulation barrier that saves energy and cost"
