Radiant Barrier will save your energy costs by up to 11%

Attic Bros installs radiant barriers in homes—most commonly in attics—to reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss, which helps lower heating and cooling costs. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it.

What can you expect from Radiant Barrier?

Radiant barriers will offer you the following benefits:

  • More comfortable living space
  • Lowered utility costs by as much as 11%
  • Increased life expectancy of your heating and air conditioning equipment
  • Peace of mind!
Radiant barriers work by reducing heat transfer by thermal radiation across the air space between the roof deck and attic floor. Solar energy is absorbed by a roof, heating the roof sheathing which causes the underside of a roof to radiate heat downward to the attic floor and the ceilings of your home. When this radiant heat penetrates your attic space and passes through your ceilings your home will require increased cooling loads to maintain a consistent and comfortable temperature. To maintain these types air temperatures requires an increase of energy consumption by your air conditioning system. Attic Bros offers a free, in-home consultation for homeowners considering radiant barrier insulation to reduce their energy costs.
