Regulate Temperatures Better With a Radiant Barrier
An innovation originally developed by NASA for astronaut space suits has become a viable way to save on heating and cooling energy bills. The popularity of heat reflecting foil is growing rapidly as homeowners become aware of the benefits. Aluminum foil-based radiant barriers has found its way into the homes of people across the world, making their homes more comfortable and increasing their home’s energy efficiency. Reducing summer attic heat gain and preventing winter heat loss is the most important thing you can do to make your home more energy efficient. A radiant barrier installation will pay huge dividends in achieving better energy efficiency.
Radiant Barriers Keep Heat Out During the Summer!
Old metal framed or leaky vinyl framed windows let heat and cold air escape. Having energy efficient windows in Utah is especially beneficial for your home because of our fluctuating weather and climate. Energy efficient windows help keep your home cool in the summer months and warm during winter months, so you spend less money trying to maintain a consistent internal temperature in your home.
A Radiant Barrier Installation Keeps Heat In During WinterIn the winter, heat passes through your ceiling and into the attic and out of the house completely. When heat is lost through the ceiling and attic, your home’s heater works to reheat the space. A properly installed radiant barrier can reduce this wasted energy by reflecting much of the heat back towards the interior of the building, keeping your home warmer and reducing your heating bills. As the cost of natural gas and electricity continues to increase, payback times decreases. The attic is the most common location for a radiant barrier installation. Virtually every home will benefit from an attic installed radiant barrier system.
A properly installed radiant barrier will reflect up to 97% of the radiant heat entering the attic
