Radiant Barrier

Radiant Barrier Has Its Benefits

Radiant Barrier is a great addition to any home thats located in a very hot sunny area where there isn’t much of a winter.  The reason why is simple.  Radiant Barrier is technically not an attic insulation, its a foil paper that lines the roof and even in some cases the floor of an attic.  How can this foil paper be so important you ask??  How it actually works is that it acts as a shield that reflects the suns heat rays away from your home.  This causes the attic to stay much cooler, and if your attic insulation is doing its job like it should, you should not have much heat come through your ceiling into your living space.  This is why Radiant Barrier works so well in the hot sunny areas because it works for you most of the year.

More than likely if you were to have Radiant Barrier installed in this type of climate, you would see a decline in energy usage.  When the heat cannot transfer through your ceiling into your living space, your air-conditioning won’t have to run nearly as often.  The same can be said for your attic insulation in colder climates.  If you attic insulation is up to specs it should drastically reduce cooler temps from coming through your ceiling.  Resulting in you heating system to run much less.  In both cases there is a common denominator.  That is one awesome thing… SAVING MONEY!!!  Yes of course there is a cost to having your attic insulation and your radiant barrier installed or updated.  We do offer 100% FREE ESTIMATES so there is no obligation unless you decide you really want to save money in the long run.  Energy costs have risen over the years so why not do your part to help yourself out.  Insulations and barriers have been known to cut costs in a home up to 30 and 40%  These numbers will depend on your homes current insulation situation and climate.
