Welcome to the Radiant Barrier Specialists. We increase the comfort in your home and reduce your energy bills by installing Radiant Barrier Foil in your attic and air conditioning duct work resulting in a more comfortable living environment.
Radiant Barrier Foil reflects up to 97% of the heat away from entering your attic. This means your attic is 20 degrees cooler resulting in your living space feeling 9 degrees cooler. That 9 degrees difference in your living space allows you to run your A/C less, lower your energy bill, and enjoy an improvement in comfort.
How Radiant Barriers work:
On a typical sunny summer day in Houston, solar energy is absorbed by the roof of your home, heating the roof sheathing and causing the underside of the sheathing and the roof frame to become hot. These hot surfaces then radiate heat downward to the attic floor and surround your air conditioning ducts resulting in an extremely hot attic and an overburdened cooling system.
Radiant Barriers installed under the attic rafters reduce that energy flow thereby reducing the temperature in the attic.
This lowers the temperature of the attic floor as well. and the attic floor will reduce the work load of your air conditioning system and the overall temperature level in your living areas.
A Radiant Barrier around the duct work reduces the temperature of the surrounding air, allowing the cold air from the cooling system to remain cool and in the ducts. Sealing the ductwork keeps the cold air on its way living areas.
A combination of radiant barrier applied to the roof underside and sealing ductwork will reduce the work load of your air conditioning system and the overall temperature level in your living areas.Continue Reading
