Designed initially for warmer climates, radiant barriers provide insulation primarily against the heat that beats down on your roof. This product saves energy and enhances your comfort by reducing attic temperatures by up to 30 degrees in the summer. It can also provide effective winter insulation and enhance your home’s heating and air conditioning performance. It can save you hundreds of dollars each year.
Typically installed in roof rafters and walls, radiant barrier is made up of multiple aluminum layers. Perforations in the layers allow the product to breathe. The separate layers reflect radiant energy by up to 97 percent. As a result, your home stays more comfortable, especially in the summer months.
