Let your house work for you by reflecting that sun.
The main point of installing a radiant barrier is to bring the temperature down in your home. In the summer your home can get very hot and when this happens it means you have to get the air conditioning system cranked up to circulate cool air. By installing a radiant barrier you are deflecting the sun’s rays off your roof and effectively stopping your home becoming an oven. NASA has even used this technology and they helped found it, this technology has been applied to homes so you can benefit from this.

The team measures up your attic and supplies the correct amount of radiant barrier material that’s needed. The installation depending on the size of your attic should not take longer than a few days.
How old is this technology?
Radiant reflective thermal technology has been around since the 1970s. If ever you have seen a running race and at the end of the race the marshals hand out silver blankets. This is what it is, a thermal reflective blanket. It’s bouncing the heat back off yourself against the radiant blanket and back on to you to keep you warm. It’s been used in space exploration for some time now as well as window treatments.
The sun generates radiant solar energy which effectively heats your roof to the point where that heat is transferred to your attic warming your ceiling. By adding the radiant barrier to stop this heat entering the attic it bounces back the heat to keep the area cool. With adding a radiant barrier you can save up to $150 in hotter climates and reduce the need of your energy consumption.
