Do you struggle with a hot attic in the warm spring and summer months and wondering if you need a radiant barrier? In our warm Charlotte climate, homeowners with lots of sun exposure get frustrated with the toll the temperatures take not only on the comfort of their home, but also the impact this extreme heat can have on the efficiency and lifespan of their cooling systems.
The secret to significantly reducing the effects of radiant heat on your home? An easily installed radiant barrier in your attic.
How Do Radiant Barriers Work?
Radiant barriers can be made in a variety of reflective insulation products that resemble thick aluminum foil. When installed properly, radiant barriers can significantly reduce radiant heat infiltration from the sun’s rays, cooling the attic floor above your home’s bedrooms (or other second-story living spaces), and functioning as a cost-effective solution to lowering the energy costs for your home’s cooling system.
What are the Benefits of Professionally-installed Radiant Barriers?
To achieve maximum efficiency and value, radiant barriers must be installed to include an air gap between it and your roof. These also need to be installed in a manner that will ensure minimal (if any) dust accumulation.
