A radiant barrier is a reflective material that helps to reduce heat transfer by reflecting radiant heat away from your home. It works by creating a barrier between your living space and the attic, preventing the attic's radiant heat from entering your home during the hot summer months. This allows your HVAC system to operate more efficiently and reduces the strain on your cooling equipment. By installing a radiant barrier, you can significantly reduce your cooling costs by up to 20-40% in the summer months and up to 12-18% in the winter months. The barrier prevents the transfer of radiant heat, keeping your home cooler and reducing the need for excessive air conditioning.

A radiant barrier is a highly reflective material that is installed in buildings, typically in the attic space, to reduce heat transfer through radiation. Its primary function is to block the radiant heat from the sun and prevent it from entering the living space below, especially during the hot summer months. Radiant barriers work by reflecting radiant heat rather than absorbing it. When sunlight hits the roof, the roof absorbs a significant amount of heat. This heat is then radiated downwards into the attic and eventually into the living space. However, when a radiant barrier is installed, it reflects a large portion of the radiant heat back toward the roof, preventing it from penetrating into the living areas. By reflecting the radiant heat away, a radiant barrier helps to reduce the amount of heat that enters your home, making it easier to maintain a cooler indoor temperature.
When combined with proper insulation, Radiant Barriers can provide significant energy savings and make a noticeable difference in cooling bills. By reflecting radiant heat away from the living space, radiant Barriers help to reduce the amount of heat that enters your home, thereby reducing the workload on your cooling system. The actual energy savings achieved by installing a Radiant Barrier will depend on various factors, including the size of your home, insulation levels, local climate, and cooling usage patterns. However, it is not uncommon for homeowners to experience notable reductions in their cooling costs, with some reporting savings of up to 50% when a Radiant Barrier is combined with adequate insulation. It's important to note that the effectiveness of Radiant Barriers may vary based on the specific circumstances. Factors such as the orientation of the roof, the amount of direct sunlight hitting the roof, and the presence of other heat transfer mechanisms should also be considered.

Attic insulation and Radiant Barrier will lower your energy costs and keep your HVAC system from working so hard in the Texas heat. Attic insulation combined with Radiant Barrier works in the summer to keep heat out and in the winter to keep heat in.
One of the most common questions we receive is how much insulation an attic needs. This all depends on the climate of your region, but here in Texas, we have hot attics. So R-38 insulation is a good choice for our area. Homes without Radiant Barrier will need more insulation than homes with Radiant Barrier. The amount needed depends on the size of the attic, the height of the attic, etc.

To determine the best insulation for your home or office, it is best to schedule an evaluation of your property. We can take a look at your attic environment, recommend the best combination of insulation and Radiant Barrier and provide a price.
We provide a free energy audit so that we can determine the best materials to fit your needs. We perform a thorough inspection of your attic to determine how you can best protect your home and lower your overall energy costs. If an energy audit determines that your home will not benefit from a Radiant Barrier Attic System or insulation upgrade then the owner Mr. Jones will advise such.
