Have you noticed your home’s cooling costs vary greatly between spring and fall? Do you wish you could have your home cool more efficiently and stay at an even temperature? At AppleBlossom Energy, we know how hard it can be on your cooling system to try to keep your home at a steady temperature during the warm months of the year. One option we provide that may help in reducing your cooling costs and keeping your home comfortable are radiant barriers.
Radiant barriers are installed in your attic to reduce heat gain, and therefore utility costs. In many homes, the HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) ducts are in the attic, where temperatures can be 120° or higher. Radiant barriers are a type of a spray-on insulation that reflects heat. When a radiant barrier is installed, the ducts will operate inside a controlled space, thereby increasing performance while reducing energy consumption and prolonging the life of the system. When applied correctly, radiant barriers work well with other types of insulation. AppleBlossom uses low emissivity reflectives that are so effective, they are used by NASA in spacecraft.
