Radiant barriers are materials that are installed in buildings to reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss, which helps lower heating and cooling costs. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it.
Radiant barrier spray is a high-tech coating that was originally developed by the U.S. military to make their vehicles invisible to heat-seeking missiles. Its remarkable heat-shielding properties make it an ideal radiant barrier for your home or business.
When the sun heats a roof, it's primarily the sun's radiant energy that makes the roof hot. A large portion of this heat travels by conduction through the roofing materials to the attic side of the roof. The hot roof material then radiates its gained heat energy onto the cooler attic surfaces, including the air ducts and the attic floor. A radiant barrier reduces the radiant heat transfer from the underside of the roof to the other surfaces in the attic.
