Why are Radiant Barriers an Important Part of Overall Insulation?

Radiant barriers have been shown to provide some savings on cooling bills in hot climates. These barriers are installed in attics as they block some of the heat that is entering a house through the roof. The barriers provide some protection and savings, but should not be seen as a replacement for insulation. A radiant barrier is just one aspect of keeping a house cool in summer and should be seen as a key part, but only a part.

What are the Benefits of Using an Attic Stair Cover?

If your energy bill has gotten out of hand, you may be considering ways to decrease your energy usage. One place to start looking for savings is in the attic.

As you look for ways to save, you may come across something called an “attic stair cover”. If you are not sure what this is, your mind will flood with questions.

How to Use Super R® Radiant Barrier Products

A significant amount of radiant heat passes through your attic. Radiant heat can pass through the roof, then pass into your home. This causes your home to get hotter in the summer, and colder as it passes through the roof in the winter. Your air conditioner or heater heats or cools the air in your home. Radiant heat escapes through the roof of your home in the winter, and passes through the roof in the summer. This makes your home appliances work harder to keep the desired temperature. Both factors cause your energy usage to increase to maintain the temperature you set. When you are looking to cut back on your energy usage, you may consider using our radiant barrier products. This product reflects the radiant heat back into your home in the winter, and back outside in the summer. This makes the home appliance units not have to work as hard, lowering your energy usage.

How Does RF Shielding Work?

It may seem unlikely that a house wrap that offers RF shielding can really help with energy savings, but it is true.
