Get Started

An important way to keep your home efficient is to stop radiant heat from the sun from entering your home in the summer. To understand why radiant barriers are important in Wake Forest, NC area homes, we need to explain the two types of heat in your home.

What is Radiant Heat?

If you think about a pan on the stove, the pan heats the water inside because it is in contact with the element — that’s conductive heat. Your hand can be warmed by radiant heat without touching the stove. Typical attic and wall insulation only blocks conductive heat transfer. 

Radiant heat is produced by the sun and warms your roof. In the summer, your hot roof radiates heat into the attic and your house. Radiant barrier was developed by NASA to reflect radiant heat during re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere. This technology works just as effectively to reflect heat from your home in the summer.  

How Does Attic Radiant Barrier Work?

Installing a radiant barrier in your attic will reduce your attic temperatures 30 degrees or more during the summer months. Energeyes uses a radiant barrier that reflects 97% of radiant heat to keep your attic much cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.  By lowering the temperature in your attic, you’ll feel the difference in comfort levels throughout your home. A radiant barrier also extends the life of your heating and air conditioning systems by reducing the operation time and moderating ambient temperature inside your attic.

Insulated Radiant Barrier Transforms Bonus Rooms

Insulated radiant barrier combines the reflective value of a radiant barrier with insulation, resulting in a powerful energy-saving product. An insulated radiant barrier can be used to cover exposed attic wall insulation to improve its performance, as well as dramatically improve efficiency and comfort. Installing an insulated radiant barrier is a great solution for bonus rooms that are built over the garage and never stay a comfortable temperature.  Radiant barrier insulation can transform bonus areas into comfortable and year-round rooms.
