Indoor air quality is a major health concern in the United States. So many household products are manufactured with chemicals like formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and they “off-gas” for months or years inside the home, reducing indoor air quality and causing eye, nose, and throat irritations, headaches, and even nausea.
If you are concerned about indoor air quality and want to find alternative ways to cool down your house and attic that will not compromise air quality or irritate your body, we recommend radiant barriers.

Radiant Barriers Promote Safe Indoor Air Quality
Radiant barriers are made of reflective foil that is inorganic and non-fibrous, similar to aluminum foil. They contain no VOCs and once installed, require no maintenance.
Radiant barriers are installed in attics, which are far removed and sealed off from the living areas of the home. By placing radiant barriers in the attic, right under the roof, the barriers can reflect radiant heat from the sun out and away from the house before it ever enters the attic. This helps keep attics cooler, which helps your home’s attic insulation perform better and reduces demand on your air conditioning unit. The end result is a cooler home without any harmful VOCs off-gassing in the home or attic.
