Pests Avoid Inorganic Materials
Bugs, rodents, and birds get comfy in attics when they provide either a safe place to nest or something to eat. Radiant barriers offer neither of those benefits so pests leave them alone.
• The barriers are made of very thin foil, which is of no interest to insects and impossible for them to infiltrate.
• Radiant barriers do not offer any nesting material or protection from the cold like batt insulation does, so rodents and birds avoid it.
• It’s made of inorganic material making it moisture-resistant and inhospitable for mold and mildew.
Radiant Barriers Can Help Improve Home Comfort
Radiant barriers improve the function of your attic insulation by preventing radiant heat from the sun from penetrating into your attic. Since the barriers are placed along the roof trusses, they block and reflect radiant heat out and away from the house, rather than absorbing it as insulation does. Radiant barriers reflect 97% of radiant heat. That reduces the workload on your insulation and your home’s cooling system. There is simply less heat for the insulation to try to block from entering the home. The less heat that enters the home from the attic, the cooler the home stays, and the less work for your air conditioner.
