WOW, it’s been cold lately. Not surprisingly, I’ve received a bunch of calls and emails from people wanting more information on how installing a radiant barrier can help them in cold weather.
I put together a video to help illustrate how traditional attic insulation and radiant barrier WORK TOGETHER to make a home more comfortable and energy efficient.
Remember, traditional attic insulation – fiberglass or cellulose help to reduce Conductive Heat Loss. A radiant barrier will help to reduce Radiant Heat Loss. In cold weather, heat is lost in BOTH ways.
Combining good attic insulation and radiant barrier will give your home the best defense to stay warm in the Winter and cool in the Summer.
