    How Does A Radiant Barrier Work?

    When the sun is pounding on your roof during the warmer months, it generates heat, making the roof very hot. This heat then travels through roofing materials and into the attic. When your attic is hot, it can then travel down into your home, making your cooling system work overtime.

    By installing a radiant barrier in your attic, you can reduce radiant heat transfer from the roof to your attic by absorbing that heat. They lower heat transfer rates and keep the attic space cooler, lowering cooling costs by up to 17%.

    The highly reflective material of a radiant barrier is usually made of aluminum foil, which can be applied to a number of different materials, including craft paper, plastic films, cardboard, strand board, and air infiltration barriers. 

    You may also want to combine your radiant barrier with other types of insulation materials to further increase your home’s energy efficiency.

    Radiant Barrier Installation Methods

    There are two methods for installing radiant barriers – on top of the attic floor and on the underside of the roof.

    Under The Roof

    When you install a radiant barrier to the underside of the roof, you are allowing for proper ventilation, ensuring heat is reflected back up before reaching the floor of the attic. You should contact a professional to install a radiant barrier to the underside of the roof. This type of installation is more complicated.

    Benefits Of Installing a Radiant Barrier

    • You can potentially reflect up to 97% of solar radiation
    •  A cooler attic space means less heat flowing to the living areas below
    • Reduced attic temps increase attic ductwork efficiency
    • Reduction of overall cooling costs
    • Ability to create storage in the attic

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    I have animals in my attic! How do you get rid of them?

    Pests love to reside in attics, from rodents to bats and insects like roaches – they all may be renting space in your attic. Droppings from these pests can have very adverse effects on your health. Also, pests chew holes in walls, destroy insulation, and chew through electrical wires.

    Our attic cleaning services can eliminate dust, mold, pests, and their byproducts. Removing all these contaminants from your attic can freshen your home and have you breathing easier again.

    How does dust and mold in the attic affect my health?

    Most attics can be very dusty. And dust can wreak havoc on your health. Dust is made of tiny particles of solid waste matter and can be lifted into the air in your home. Mold could also be lurking in your attic and make you very ill. Mold loves damp, dark places and can be extremely toxic. Signs of mold sickness include trouble breathing, irritated eyes, and even arthritis!

    How do I know if my attic needs cleaning?

    Most homeowners don’t know when they should clean their attics or if their attic even needs cleaning. We recommend a thorough cleaning of your attic every few years. Our attic professionals can tackle your attic cleaning job, so you don’t have to. Your attic may not be a living space but still requires cleaning like the rest of your home.

    Some signs of a dirty attic include: increased utility charges, health issues, odors, changes in home temperature, animal infestations.

    I feel sick. Why do I need an attic cleaning?

    Do you have a sore throat that won’t go away? Maybe you just can’t shake that cold that started in the fall. If you have unexplainable illnesses, colds or allergies that just won’t go away, it might be time to hire attic professionals to determine whether you need an attic cleaning.
