Radiant Barrier Roofing Is Meant to Lower the Temperature of Your Attic.

If you’re looking for ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home, you might be considering installing a radiant barrier on your roof. Radiant barrier roofing provides a shield between your roof and your attic. This shield reflects the heat from the sun and lowers the internal temperature of your attic. This in turn lowers the internal temperature of the rest of the house and can save you money on your air conditioning bill.

Will Radiant Barrier Roofing Benefit You?

While it is true that radiant barrier roofing provides excellent energy savings and improves the energy efficiency of your home, it may not be the solution for everyone. Here are some scenarios about when your home could absolutely benefit from a radiant barrier.

If Your Attic is Poorly Insulated
The insulation in your attic serves to keep warm or cold air from passing through the ceiling or the walls. If you have adequate insulation in your attic, a radiant barrier isn’t going to make that much of a difference. If, however, you lack insulation in your attic, installing a radiant barrier would greatly improve the temperature of your home and is less expensive than getting new insulation.

Your Roof is In Direct Sunlight
If your home is shaded from the sun, installing radiant barrier roofing won’t affect the temperature of home that much. Homes that have a south facing roof that is in direct line of the sun will see significant differences with a radiant barrier.
