The Energy Efficient Attic® system from ARS®/Rescue Rooter® combines appropriate insulation with proper ventilation and a radiant barrier to help your home provide a comfortable—and energy-saving—environment year-round.

The system may even pay for itself with savings of up to 30%* annually in heating and cooling costs. The average return on investment is 2 to 4 years. However, when energy costs rise, you could recoup the cost even sooner.

*According to the U.S. Department of Energy. Savings may vary depending on the original amount of insulation in your home, climate, house size, air leaks, and personal energy use and living habits. Learn more at http://www.energy.gov/insulationairsealing.htm.

Radiant Barrier

It takes more than ventilation and insulation to make your home energy efficient and comfortable. By reflecting much of the sun's radiant heat, a radiant barrier applied in your attic combines with insulation and ventilation to reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Radiant barrier coating technology is also used in U.S. military applications, as well as in the aerospace industry.  We actually use rocket science to save you money!  One thin coat of this spray on the underside of your roof deck reduces up to 80% of the radiant heat from the sun in summer.

In winter, it’s also easy for heat to escape from your home through the attic. Our radiant barrier spray, applied in just hours, will also reflect heat back towards your attic before it escapes.

The radiant barrier spray works well on new or existing roofs, goes on in one even coat and leaves no gaps or holes.

Insulation

A well-insulated home is one that prevents the flow of heat from warm spaces to cooler spaces. By decreasing this heat transfer, insulation lowers your energy costs and puts less strain on your heating and cooling system.

Your attic is the major conduit for heat transfer in your home. Winter is the prime time for heated air to flow to unheated spaces, like your attic, garage or basement. The opposite happens in summer when heat from outside tries to invade your cool home.

Not only can insulation play a key role in maintaining a comfortable temperature, it also acts as a sound absorber to make your home a quieter place.

Ventilation

Balancing proper attic ventilation with exceptional insulation and heat reflection is critical to creating the most energy-efficient environment in your attic. Employing wind or natural convection, our ventilation solution pulls air out of your attic through ridge vents while replacement air flows in through the soffits.

Along with increasing the energy efficiency of your attic and thus your home, we will also make sure your attic meets the requirement of building codes for good attic ventilation. Based on results of our no-cost evaluation, we may also recommend installing other systems, such as wind turbines, air hawks, and other powered and solar-powered vents, depending on the structure of your roof.

Proper attic ventilation is a key component in preventing heat build-up in summer and getting rid of the moisture and warm air produced daily by laundry, showers, and cooking. Trapped moisture will condense on cooler solid surfaces and that spells trouble for your home.
