Benefits of Radiant Barrier Technology

Maintaining an energy efficient home can not only protect the environment but can also lower monthly utility bills throughout the year. One of the best and most effective ways to increase energy efficiency is to install insulation in attics and other areas where heat conduction is an issue. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recommends radiant barrier solutions as an effective and cost-efficient way to reduce heating and cooling costs and to conserve energy throughout the home. According to DOE estimates, radiant barriers can potentially reduce cooling costs by as much as 10 percent in hot and sunny climates.
