See the difference?
After reading the title of this post you probably asked yourself, “What is a Radiant Barrier?” Good question, especially for us desert dwellers trying to save money on our utilities bills and help lessen our carbon footprint.
A Radiant Barrier is a type of foil insulation made of a reflective foil material. This material is generally installed in the attic area of a home, and Adair Solar Company in Phoenix is offering it now as a part of our growing list of products and services.
So what’s the difference between Radiant Barrier and other forms of attic insulation? HUGE savings in energy, that’s what. Because it isn’t your typical “cotton candy” insulation, Radiant Barrier allows for heat to be deflected from the home itself. In addition, it has the ability to stave off the heat coming from the sun –radiant heat — when it comes through the building materials above the insulations, including any type of roof, the wood, stucco, and tiles that are part of the top of a house above the attic itself. By not allowing this heat in by means of “sending it back,” Radiant Barrier insulation is far more effective than other forms of insulation.
