Radiant Barrier Insulation in Orlando and Central Florida
As you might guess the sun is the primary factor in hearing your home and the first part of your home to heat up is your attic. So why not stop the Central Florida sun in its tracks with Radiant Barrier.
Radiant barrier is an aluminum foil that we install on the inside lining on the top of your attic. This lining reflects the sun away from your attic making your home cooler and more comfortable. A cooler home means lower utility costs.
Radiant barrier does exactly what the name says, it prevents sun radiation from even entering your home. Hard to believe? Think about those front windshield covers people put on inside of their windows when they park their cars. They do this to help keep their cars cooler in the summer sun. Radiant barrier does the same thing, but it does so for your entire home!
Radiant barrier can be used alone or in conjunction with other types of insulation such as cellulose or fiberglass to make for an all encompassing insulated attic. Radiant barrier is especially helpful for spaces where blown in insulation is not an option such as an open ceiling shed or garage or an attic with a floor that is walked on regularly.
