Reflecting Summer Heat & Saving Money
This entry was posted on July 20, 2011.
We feel like we are constantly beating the drum on reducing summer heat. If you look at the temperature last week and what's here for a lot of us this week, it's hot across America. And it's only going to get hotter for the next few days.
If you installed your radiant barrier this spring or took any of our energy saving advice on attic ventilation, you will no doubt be cooler. If you didn't, well, you're not getting the simple but all important benefits of these improvements.
This means specifically that your attic temperature is a much hotter than it has to be. This causes your living space to heat up much more than it has to. Once the heat sets in, at this higher rate, it also takes longer to dissipate in the evening. This means your home stays hotter, longer than it needs to. The entire cycle is repeated daily causing more heat to transfer inside your building or your air conditioning has to work that much harder to keep the temperature you set.
For $149 delivered per 1000 square feet, we can supply you the best Energy Star Rated Radiant Barrier on the market and at the best price. If you are a DIY'er, your cost ends there. If you are not, hire a handy friend or a contractor for a few hours and have them install it for you. If they're any questions, call us. We'd love to speak with you.
Radiant barriers reduce a home's heat by blocking up to 97% of radiant heat generated by the sun. This immediately results in a cooler attic temperature and a cooler indoor space. Call us at 800-871-0410 or shop our Radiant Barrier Insulation online now.
