Radiant Barrier Insulation Phoenix, AZ
What Is Radiant Barrier Insulation?
This type of insulation is installed in a house attic or attached to the roof rafters. It will block 97% of the radiant heat from the sun from entering the home or building. This keeps the attic cooler space cooler during the summer which reduces the amount of energy the air conditioner must use to cool down the house.
Radiant barrier insulation differs from traditional insulation in that it is designed to reflect heat instead of slowing the transfer through roofing material, attics, and into homes. Radiant barrier installation has the purpose of using highly reflective surfaces to reflect the heat before it can enter the attic.
BASF Radiance® is the original radiant paint barrier which blocks heat.
Radiant Barrier Installation
The installation of radiant barriers depends upon which type of radiant barrier you choose. Both HeatBloc® and Radiance® are applied much like paint. Either they are sprayed onto the bottom surface of your roof, inside the attic or they are brushed and rolled onto the surface.
Radiant foil is applied much like rolled batt insulation by laying it down on the attic floor or hanging it from the rafters. Foil requires a empty space for the product to work its best.
Once you have decided which radiant barrier insulation type is best for your Barrier Insulation will professionally install your radiant barrier. Radiant barrier installation in Phoenix will help lower the heat transfer through your roof, and lower your energy costs.
