Radiant Barrier

3Radiant barrier is a metallic foil used to create a thermal shield that blocks radiant heat from any direction. We typically recommend radiant barrier in addition to attic fans as a two prong approach in optimizing energy efficiency in your home.

We recommend and install Radiantguard radiant barriers. They block 97% of the radiant heat. Lowering the temperatures above living space ceilings provides a significant benefit by reducing air conditioning loads and energy usage. Our radiant barriers can:

  • Reduce heat transfer from attic to living spaces by 25-42%
  • Extend the life of air conditioning unit
  • Increase the comfort level of a home or building
  • Reduce monthly cooling bills up to 25-30%
  • Balances temperatures across living space
