No. Radiant Barrier has been used extensively in the south, showing no difference in roof temperatures, as confirmed by field tests.
The Florida Solar Energy Center at Cape Canaveral has tested radiant barriers in both small-scale laboratory and full-scale building models. Their results indicate that radiant barriers provide significant resistance to heat transfer. Current tests conducted by the Tennessee Valley Authority and the University of Mississippi support the findings of the Florida Solar Energy Center. Northeastern Illinois University conducted winter tests in residential and commercial structures using infra-red thermograph photography. The photos showed significant resistance to heat transfer over the regular insulation.
Regardless of how much insulation you have in your attic, adding Radiant Barrier will save on your heating and cooling expense, and keep you much more comfortable. Energy savings for heating and cooling can be as much as 17%, depending on a number of factors, including climate, building configuration, materials used, site, family size and lifestyle. Your Radiant Barrier dealer has been trained to evaluate your home or business and advise you of your savings potential.
No. Radiant Barrier actually makes your present insulation more effective.
This very issue has been studied by research institutes. Most attics don’t accumulate enough dust to affect Radiant Barrier’s ability to save energy costs. Thousands of homes and structures have had Radiant Barrier installed for as long as ten years or more with no significant accumulation.
