Radiant Barrier Installation
It takes more than ventilation and insulation to make your home energy-efficient and comfortable. By reflecting much of the sun’s radiant heat away from your roof, a radiant barrier applied to the underside of your roof decking in the attic works with insulation and ventilation to further reduce your heating and cooling costs.
Radiant barrier coating technology is used in military applications, as well as in the aerospace industry to reflect heat away from critical machinery. That means we’re using actual rocket science to save you money!
So how does a radiant barrier work?
One thin coat of this spray on the underside of your roof deck reduces up to 80% of the radiant heat from the sun. Not only will your air conditioner not have to work as hard to cool your house down, but once it’s cool, it will stay that way for longer. This has the potential to save you a lot on your energy bills because you won’t have to keep your AC running for as long. In some cases, you may be able to lower your electric bill by as much as 10% when you have a radiant barrier for your attic.
If your ductwork and/or HVAC system are in your attic, a radiant barrier installation can deliver even greater benefits. That’s because it can reduce the temperature inside your attic by up to 30° F , which helps keep the air in your ducts cooler and prevents your equipment from overheating.
In winter, it’s also easy for heat to escape from your home through the attic. Our radiant heater barrier spray, applied in just hours, will reflect heat back towards your attic before it escapes. The radiant barrier spray works well on all kinds of roofs, goes on in one even coat, and leaves no gaps or holes unlike some other barrier application processes, such as foil.
Another substantial benefit of adding an attic heat barrier is that once it is installed, it requires virtually no maintenance or upkeep and should last for as long as your home does. Depending on where you live, you also may be able to take advantage of incentive programs that reward you for boosting your home’s energy-efficiency.
