BEFORE & AFTER
Put simply, a radiant barrier stops the sun’s heat from entering your home
Your roof is heated by radiant energy from the sun, which travels through your roof via the process of conduction. The underside of your roof (in your attic) becomes hot and radiates this energy to the rest of your attic and home. A radiant barrier is made of materials that are designed to stop radiant energy from penetrating your house any further than it already has.
If your home is in a hot climate, you may find that radiant barrier installation is a necessity. Radiant barrier allows you to protect your home from intense heat, especially during the hot summer months. As a result, you’ll spend a lot less on energy, saving money on power bills that you would’ve normally needed to power the air conditioning units and fans in your home. Radiant barrier installation is a smart and cost-effective way to combat the sun’s intense rays within your home.
