What Is Radiant Barrier Insulation?
Tidewater Insulators installs radiant barrier insulation in Virginia. Radiant barrier insulation is usually installed in the attic and increases your home’s ability to reflect, rather than absorb, the sun’s energy. This helps make your home much cooler in the summer!
In order for a radiant barrier insulation to be considered effective, the foil material must allow less than 10 percent of the radiant heat to pass through it. The radiant barriers we install are extremely effective!
Radiant Barrier Installation
Although radiant barrier is typically installed in attics, most homes can benefit from radiant barrier installation, especially homes with:
- Insufficient (or no) attic insulation
- Insulation that has aged considerably
- Air ducts in the attic
- A stuffy, hot second story
- Asphalt shingle roofing
- Little or no shading from trees
You’d be surprised at the difference radiant barrier can make—radiant barrier insulation is extremely effective at reflecting direct sunlight away from your home, helping to keep it more comfortable no matter what time of year it is.
