Radiant barriers are a great way to insulate the roof deck of your attic so you can keep more of the heat out and reduce the amount of energy used while doing so.  You’re probably wondering exactly what radiant barriers are, since most homes are not equipped with them at the outset.  Simply put, radiant barriers are a kind of spray-on insulation that will help to reflect heat, making it so you don’t have to battle with those heat waves coming down from your attic every day.

Radiant barriers also help to enclose the HVAC air ducts in a conditioned space, thereby reducing the amount of energy needed to run your HVAC system and reducing your energy costs in the process.  The best thing about radiant barriers is that they are inconspicuous, which means that they perform their energy-saving tasks without anyone but you knowing that they are in your home.  Essentially, radiant barriers could be classified as one of the unsung, invisible heroes of energy efficiency.
