What is Radiant Barrier?

Radiant barrier is a highly reflective material that blocks the transfer of radiant heat by reflecting it away from its surface offering a permanent way to reduce your monthly utility costs. Radiant barrier insulation systems stop radiant heat energy instead of absorbing it like fiberglass insulation. Because this foil insulation is unaffected by humidity, it will continue to perform at a consistent level no matter how humid the seasonal climate.

Comfort

Who doesn’t like to be comfortable in their own home? Radiant barrier will have a huge impact on the comfort of your home in the summer months. Radiant barriers can reduce attic temperatures 20 degrees to 35 degrees. This will have a huge effect on helping the areas below to stay cooler in the summer. If you have that one room that you can’t seem to keep cool no matter what you set your thermostat to, you might have an insulation problem.
