How Do Radiant Barriers Work?
Made of highly reflective materials, such as aluminum foil, radiant barriers are designed to reflect heat instead of absorbing it. As a result, radiant barriers can help reduce radiant heat gain, which is particularly important in the warmer months. During the summer, your attic can become extremely hot as the sun heats your home’s or business’s roof. The radiant energy from the sun will then travel by conduction through your roofing materials into your attic and air ducts, putting your A/C system on overdrive and reducing your interior comfort.
While radiant barriers help keep the indoor temperature in check throughout the summer months, they can also help reduce ice buildup during the cold season. Because heat loss through your roofing materials can cause ice dams, radiant barriers aid in the prevention of these hazardous ice ridges. Additionally, radiant barriers also help keep heat in, saving you on winter energy costs.
