If summer heat is making it past the barrier of your roof without a substantial drop in temperature, radiant barrier insulation installed by the experts at Alpine Roofing Construction may be the solution that you need to keep your home comfortably cool.
How Radiant Barriers Work
Heat generated by the sun can enter your home through thermal conduction and through electromagnetic radiation. Heat conduction can occur whenever two solid materials come into contact with each other. Without a protective barrier, much of the sun’s heat that strikes your roof is conducted straight through to your ceilings. Any solid surface capable of absorbing the energy from solar radiation will get warmer. The result is a hot attic that makes air conditioning systems work harder, driving up energy bills.
Radiant barriers are equipped with specialized reflective insulation that helps block the amount of heat and radiation that enters a home. Several types of radiant barriers are available, including radiant heat barriers that are installed during the roofing process, barriers installed underneath the roof rafters and barriers installed on the floor of the attic above the existing insulation.
Benefits of Radiant Barrier Installations.
Radiant barriers can effectively lower the temperature of your attic during hot summer months by as much as 30 degrees. Cooler attics and ceilings mean that your cooling and heating systems will operate more efficiently, substantially reducing your home’s energy bills. Increasing the energy efficiency of your home is one of the best things that you can do to lessen the environmental impact of home energy consumption. Because your air conditioners and heaters won’t have to work as hard when your home has a radiant barrier system, they’ll last longer. You’ll enjoy immediate savings on monthly energy bills and will save money down the line as well.
When it comes to radiant barrier systems, proper installation is critical, particularly for indoor installations. To work effectively, the material must be fitted neither too tightly nor too loosely.
