Radiant barriers are an insulation system consisting of a low emittance to heat transfer. The low emittance is made with pure aluminum foil. Radiant Barriers works exceptionally well in sunny climates where a significant amount of heat transfer into and out of a home is through radiation. Radiant Barriers can be used alone, or in conjunction with mass insulation (fiberglass, sprayfoam, etc.) to create a hybrid insulation system for enhanced thermal performance. Radiant Barrier Foil Insulation installed in attics can reduce attic temperatures by up to 30 degrees thus making your attic cooler. It is stapled on the underside of the roof rafters and can reflect up to 97% of the radiant heat that strikes it’s surface thereby reducing heat transfer from the attic to living spaces resulting in lower utility bills. This method also reduces heat subject to attic mounted AC duct work thereby allowing them to work more efficiently.
