Radiant Barriers

WHAT IS A RADIANT BARRIER

Insulation in attic

A radiant barrier is a type of highly reflective building material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. Radiant barriers keep the heat out in the summer and help keep the heat in during the winter. Radiant barriers reduce the emittance of radiant energy by up to 97%. They are usually installed on roof rafters and the walls in the attic.

Have you ever gone into your attic during the summer months and thought “it’s way hotter up here than it is outside”? Well did you know that when it’s 100 degrees outside your attic space can be 140 degrees or more! Think of all that heat leaking into your home!

BENEFITS OF A RADIANT BARRIER

Radiant Barrier Roof
  • Cooler and more comfortable rooms in summer.
  • Helps keep your attic from overheating in the summer.
  • Save Money on Power Bills - Air conditioning & heating system doesn’t run as much since it helps keep the heat in or out of the home depending on the season.
  • Helps your HVAC system keep up with the desired temperature on the hottest days during summer.
  • Improves the efficiency of your existing insulation & HVAC system.
  • Improves lifespan of your roof by reducing the thermal stress on the roof structure.
  • Radiant barriers last for 80 – 100 years. If certified attic specialists install them correctly, radiant barriers can last anywhere from 80 to 100 years! That’s a long time!
