Standard Insulating Company specializes in radiant barrier installation—a high-performance attic upgrade that not only enhances the comfort of your home, but also increases your savings on heating and cooling costs throughout the year. Radiant barriers utilize aluminum layers to reflect and curtail the emittance of radiant energy by a remarkable 97%.
What are Radiant Barriers Good For?
Radiant barriers are used for keeping the sun's radiant heat from warming up your home from the outside during the summer, as well as preventing the heat inside your home from radiating outside during the winter. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for homes in the Charlotte area, radiant barriers do work especially well for homes that do not receive any tree shade during the summer months.
How Radiant Barriers Work to Improve Efficiency
Standard Insulating Company trusts Fi-Foil reflective insulation for our radiant barrier installations in Charlotte homes. What sets Fi-Foil apart is its innovative design: barriers of multiple aluminum layers that separate when installed, forming an enclosed airspace. These layers are perforated to allow vapor transmission, an effective strategy to thwart heat during the sweltering summer months, while also retaining it during the chilly winter season.
The Benefits of Radiant Barrier Installation
Beyond their impressive heat-reflective qualities, radiant barriers have a plethora of benefits that extend to all areas of your living space. They reduce the need for air conditioning and heating equipment, substantially reducing your energy consumption and related costs. They can also help stabilize the temperatures throughout your home, making it more comfortable from top to bottom.
Enhancing Insulation Efficiency
Pairing radiant barriers with other insulation upgrades can further improve the efficiency of your home. Combining both thermal and radiant heat resistance helps maintain an ideal indoor temperature, further optimizing the performance of your HVAC systems.
The Radiant Barrier Cost and Installation Process
Radiant barrier installation is a simple, minimally invasive process that doesn't interfere with existing insulation. The cost can vary depending on the size and specific needs of your home or building. However, with the potential savings on utility bills and the added value to your property, it’s an investment that pays off in the long run when properly incorporated into your home improvement project.
