Radiant Barrier Foil & Bubble Wrap Insulation
RadiantGUARD® radiant barrier and
reflective bubble insulation reduce heating and cooling costs making your home more comfortable both in the
summer and winter months all while lowering your energy consumption saving you money
year round. How do radiant barriers
work? By BLOCKing up to 97% of the radiant heat from passing through it.

Lower Your Utility Bills
A majority of the heat gain in a home comes from the ceiling above in warmer months
as a result of heat transfer from an attic space above. An attic
space is heated in the summer months by thermal radiation
from the sun. The shingles on a roof absorb radiant heat from the sun,
and then transfer this heat (via conduction) into the attic space below.
This heat is then radiated from the roof decking into the attic space
and subsequently into your living space below resulting in increased
temperatures and added strain on your air conditioning units to maintain
a comfortable temperature.
While most homes have one of many different types of conventional
insulation, that alone cannot stop the transfer of radiant heat into
living spaces. Conventional insulation is designed to absorb heat
up to a certain amount. Once the insulation reaches its holding
capacity (saturation), the heat is then transferred completely through
into the areas below.
A RadiantGUARD® reflective foil insulation
BLOCKS 97% of radiant heat transfer when placed between the roof and the
living spaces below. By either stapling to the underside of a roof
decking or rafters, or laying over the attic floor over existing
insulation or none, our foil faced insulation can significantly improve the
comfort of your home. Without
this added heat from the attic space above, living spaces stay cooler
and your air conditioning unit runs less often resulting in lower
utility bills for the consumer.
