Radiant Barrier Service in Greater Lexington & Georgetown Areas

Radiant Barrier Service in Lexington & Georgetown, KY

During the hot summer months, radiant barriers will provide increased home comfort and lower utility bills for homeowners as an insulation option for your attic. A radiant barrier is a reflective insulation system that works by reducing radiant heat gain, often by as much as 30° F, in your attic. 

Without a radiant barrier, your roof sends solar-generated heat to your insulation below it. The insulation absorbs the heat and gradually transfers it to your ceiling and, eventually, into your home. That will increase your utility bills.

Stopping the spread of solar-generated heat with a radiant barrier, on the other hand, will improve your improve your indoor comfort and lower energy costs by as much as 15 %. It also helps in the winter months because heat always moves from hot areas to cold areas. When the outside temperature is cold, the radiant barrier will prevent the heat transfer from your warm interior to the cold outdoors.

The concept is similar to stopping excessive heat transfer inside your car with a windshield protector, only on a much grander scale.

Choosing the Right Reflective Insulation

Because radiant barriers effectively slow the transfer of heat by using a reflective process, they are sometimes referred to as "reflective insulation" or "radiant barrier insulation." Regardless of what you call the process, the purpose is to reduce radiant heat gain by stopping the spread of solar-generated heat to places where you do not want it to go.

In an attic, the radiant barriers installed by Weatherization Plus work by reflecting heat. When it's hot, up to 97% of the sun's heat can be reflected back outside by a radiant barrier.

This will reduce your heat gain and lower the wear-and-tear stress on your HVAC unit. The process works the other way during winter months, with heat from your house being reflected back toward your living space.
