Learn more about the benefits of installing a radiant barrier in your home

Heat transfer through the attic is one of the most common home energy problems. In the winter, the air you pay to heat escapes through the attic and leaks outside. In the summer, hot air from the outside warms up the attic and the living space below, forcing your air conditioner to work harder.

Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis can help solve these problems in your home by installing a radiant barrier in your attic. Radiant barriers reflect heat and help keep your home at a more consistent temperature, creating more comfortable rooms and reducing heating and cooling costs.

    The sun beating down on your roof acts like a giant radiator causing your attic’s temperature to rise higher and higher. These radiant barriers will reflect the sun rays as a sun shade does for a car. This will lower the temperature in the attic and require the air-conditioning unit to run less. The air conditioner costs can be cut by 10% or more. In the winter time the barrier will work in reverse, reflecting some of the house's heat back toward the living space.

How a radiant barrier works in your attic

radiant barrier installation

Radiant barriers reflect heat to ensure more consistent temperatures in the home.

Radiant heat in your attic works the same way your car does on a hot summer day. The attic absorbs heat from the sun and the temperature inside rises, and that heat will be passed into the living space. This creates uncomfortably hot rooms and forces your air conditioning system to work longer and harder to keep the home at the right temperature.

A radiant barrier reflects the heat from the sun as it enters the attic, keeping the space cooler and limiting the effect on the rooms below. If you have ductwork in your attic, this is even more important, because overheated ductwork only adds to the energy needed to cool your home. In the winter, the radiant barrier has the reverse effect by reflecting heat from your living space that escapes to the attic back into the home, lessening the amount you need to run your furnace.

Radiant barriers provide an effective solution

The best radiant barriers are rigid foam insulation that is manufactured with a reflective foil that resists heat transfer. During the summer, up to 97% of the sun's heat can be reflected back outside by a radiant barrier that is installed in your attic. This will reduce the heat gain and significantly less the amount you need to run your air conditioning. In the winter, this reflective effect works the other way, reflecting heat from the house back toward your living space.
