    Big Advantages of a Radiant Barrier For Your Home

    What is a Radiant Barrier?

    Radiant barriers are prevalent in our area and installed in the attic of homes. They’re mainly for cutting down cooling costs in the summer. The material doesn’t absorb heat – it reflects it.

    So what is a radiant barrier?

    A radiant barrier is a highly reflective material that blocks heat radiation to an object from becoming energized by UV rays and radiating its own heat. They are installed in homes during the summer, usually in the attics, to reduce heat gain and help in minimizing cooling costs. Instead of absorbing heat, radiant barriers reflect the heat away from the surface.

    According to the Department of Energy, a radiant barrier should have a high reflectance of at least 90% and 10% emittance or less. 

    How does a radiant barrier work?

    Here’s how they work. Have you ever cooked with an iron skillet? The handle eventually gets hot. That’s because heat flows towards colder areas. In warm weather, if your home’s interior is 68 degrees–and it’s 85 degrees outside, heat is attracted to the cooler temperature inside. The sun heats your roof and attic. The hot air travels from your attic into your comfortable home – and heats it up. That’s unless you have a radiant barrier.

    One advantage of radiant barriers over conventional mass insulations is that they don’t get affected by humidity. Radiant barriers will perform consistently no matter how humid the seasonal climate is.

    There are different types of radiant barriers. The main component is a reflective material, typically aluminium foil. The foil is on one or two sides of the base material (cardboard, paper, plastic film). Some barrier products use reinforced-fiber for more durability

    Good To KnowHow a Radiant Barrier Can Save You Money

    A radiant barrier consists of thin sheets of reflective materials like aluminium. In the winter, it works to keep heat in your home by preventing heat loss through your roof. And in the summer, it keeps the heat from entering your attic through the rooftop and making your home hot. We provide roofing insulation installation over your attic insulation to make it more energy-efficient. So, you can consider it super roofing insulation that will save you money on your utility bills and also keep your home at a more comfortable and consistent temperature.

    Why Your Home Needs a Radiant Barrier

    • Since heat moves from hot areas towards cold areas, a radiant barrier sheathing prevents unwanted heat transfer from your warm interior to a cold attic during Puget Sound’s cold winter months.
    • When your attic is cooler in summer with a radiant barrier, your HVAC doesn’t have to work as hard. Your monthly energy bills will be lower and your home more comfortable.
    • It’s an easy and affordable solution for lower heating costs because of more efficient insulation. Plus, you’ll notice the temperature of your home is more constant.
    How do I select the best radiant barrier contractor?

    That’s simple; you find a local licensed insulation contractor like Envirosmart Solutions that provides the services you need and has excellent reviews.

    Do radiant barriers really work?

    The radiant barrier creates a cooler attic which helps reduce cooling costs. There are also some comfort improvements. Overall, when installed properly radiant barriers can provide reduced energy costs and cooler attics. The sheathing products are pretty cost effective because they add little additional cost.

    A cooler attic space means less heat moving to the cooler space below the attic. The hotter it gets the better radiant barriers work

    Radiant barriers need an air space in front of them. If they’re sandwiched between two pieces of insulation or siding, they become conductors and will actively be working against your insulation. Second, a radiant barrier is only effective if it is reflective

    Does radiant barrier block cell phone signal?

    In general, installing a radiant barrier in your attic (or on your roof) will not affect your cell phone’s signal, usually installing a radiant barrier does not cause any problems with cell phone reception.

    Is Radiant Barrier worth the money?

    Studies show that radiant barriers can reduce cooling costs 5% to 10%.
    Works to keep warm air in during the winter and solar radiant heat out during the summer. Prevents up to 97% of solar radiation.

    When Is It Time For Repair & Replacement?

    If you're noticing poor attic ventilation and moisture problems, your old radiant barrier might be the source and need replacement. That's what happens with improper installation. With excess moisture comes rot and mold, which can lead to problems for the structure of your home and the health of your family.

    Sometimes, it isn’t the fault of the radiant barrier installation – instead, the roof has poor ventilation. We can come out to your house, do an inspection, and let you know where the excess moisture problem is coming from and give you a solution.

    Here’s a quick check you can do yourself to see if the barrier is applied where it’s supposed to be:

      • Correct – Radiant barrier installed on top of the decking or roof trusses.
      • Incorrect – Radiant barrier laying on top of the fiberglass insulation on the attic floor.
    How Does a Radiant Barrier Works?

    A radiant barrier is designed to BLOCK (reflect) radiant heat energy unlike traditional insulations that are designed to slow it down by absorbing it.   A radiant barrier can also REDUCE heat transfer caused by convection by blocking convective air flow.

    What Are The Best Radiant Barrier Installation Methods?

    For effectiveness, a radiant barrier requires correct installation by professionals like the team at Envirosmart Solution. Installation isn’t a DIY type job and can be ineffective and dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. For example, the material does conduct electricity, so you have to be careful you don’t get shocked or worse. If you’re building a new home, call us during the construction process. We’re happy to do your roofing insulation installation. For existing homes, we never install a barrier over the top of the insulation on your attic floor because it can trap moisture, which is already a problem in our area.

    The most effective method of installation is connecting the radiant barrier to the underneath side of the roof. That way, heat reflects and doesn’t enter the attic. Your attic will stay cooler and have proper ventilation.

    We understand how a radiant barrier works, and our team of experts will ensure proper installation for maximum effectiveness.
