Radiant Barrier

Radiant barriers reflect 97% of radiant heat and can be installed in attics, garages, and in an infinite number of commercial applications.

Radiant barrier insulation is so effective in reducing energy bills in the summer because it works by reflecting the heat from the sun, resulting in increased performance of the structure’s existing insulation. Essentially, installing radiant barrier is like putting your house “in the shade.”

What Is Radiant Barrier?

A radiant barrier is a type of building product that reflects thermal radiation and reduces heat transfer. Since thermal energy is also transferred via conduction and convection, radiant barriers are often supplemented with thermal insulation products that slow down heat transfer via conduction or convection.

Radiant barrier reflects heat radiation [radiant heat], preventing transfer from one side to another due to a reflective, low emittance surface. In building applications, this surface is typically a very thin, mirror-like aluminum foil.

The radiant barrier that Diversified energy installs is a premium, heavy weight, dual sided [reflective foil on both sides, and bubble insulated between the top and bottom layers.

How Does Radiant Barrier Work?

Radiant barriers and reflective insulation systems work by reducing radiant heat gain. To be effective, the reflective surface must face an air space. … Radiant barriers are more effective in hot climates than in cool climates, especially when cooling air ducts are located in the attic.

How Much Does Radiant Barrier Cost?

The cost of installing radiant barrier in your home depends of a few factors, the amount of area that needs to be covered, and the location of the installation [attic, garage, etc.]. Adding radiant barrier to your home pairs well with our other insulation products, like spray foam or cellulose to ensure that you are addressing all methods of heat transfer.

    Punctual. Great service! Very friendly! Answered all my questions. Attic spray foam installation went well and it looks just like their pictures show. I will be using them to do my subfloor when it begins to get cold.

    Chad, Javon and Jasmine worked at my home in Mandeville, LA yesterday and did a great job. Their friendly customer service and careful work within the home was much appreciated. Chad was knowledgeable answering questions and explaining the procedure of what he and his crew were doing. Drafts in the home and attic were sealed as best as possible, making a large improvement for leakage which saves energy.Chad, Javon and Jasmine represent Diversified Energy very well.Thank you,Bernadette Baas
