Radiant Barrier

 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.

Radiant Barrier Benefits

  • Lowers heating and cooling costs year round
  • Reflects 70% of radiant heat
  • Non-toxic/non-carcinogenic
  • Not affected by moisture or humidity
  • Environmentally Friendly - Contains No ammonia, No alcohol, No solvents!
Additionally, radiant barriers provide dual protection.  The metallic aluminum pigment reflects radiant energy or heat from the sun during the summer months and in the winter the same microscopic aluminum particles prevent radiant energy from leaving the building.

Would you like to have more money in your wallet?  Radiant barrier will help you do just that.  Radiant barrier insulation is a reflective insulation system that offers a permanent way to reduce energy costs.  Radiant barrier insulation systems reflect radiant heat energy instead of trying to absorb it.  A radiant barrier is unaffected by humidity and will continue to perform at a consistent level no matter how humid it may be.
