Each year, unnecessary heating and cooling costs as a result of faulty and improper insulation are costing thousands of Austin property owners thousands of dollars.
In case you didn’t know, improper roofing ventilation and insulation cause drastic temperature rise by up to 25%.
Because of the increase of surrounding temperature inside your home, your air conditioning system is forced to work harder, consuming twice as much energy, to compensate for the excess heat.
As you know, Austin has a harsh, subtropical climate, which could take a toll on your home, exposing it to significant amount of heat, causing the home’s exterior to heat up.
Sadly, ordinary insulation isn’t enough to completely stop the heat from moving into your home’s living space. With just a regular insulation, the heat could cause discomfort during hot summer months.
Thankfully, radiant heat barriers are available to remedy this problem. Radiant barriers work by resisting heat transfer by reflecting it, unlike ordinary insulation systems which only slow down the movement of heat. Without the excess heat, the temperature inside your home is greatly reduced. Your air conditioning system wouldn’t work as much and you enjoy the following benefits:
- A whopping 40% decrease in your heating and cooling system consumption
- Lesser load for your air conditioning unit
- A more regulated and comfortable ambient temperature in your home’s interior
- A roof that works longer
How It Works
Radiant heat barriers are made from aluminum. Because of this, they work by bouncing off the heat that comes in contact with them. Interestingly, Aluminum only absorbs 5% of the heat that comes in contact with it, with 95% of the heat being deflected.
Aluminum also has lesser density. As such, it conducts less amount of heat, making the heat dissipate harmlessly before it gets to other parts of your home’s attic.
This principle is also true during the colder months. But this time, the heat that is produced by your home’s heating system is deflected back into the home’s interior. The heat is therefore trapped, allowing your home’s interior to stay warm. Incredibly, the indoor temperature remains evenly distributed, allowing you to consume less electricity.
The following are several of the benefits that you will get with radiant barriers:
- Convenient installation – Little to NO hassle, as radiant barriers are placed over or stapled on to the roofing joists. Setting up the barriers normally only lasts within a day when done by a professional.
- Durability and Reliability – Radiant heat barriers do not rot, decay or corrode, like its ordinary insulation counterpart. Materials made out of aluminum are also not vulnerable to damages caused by pests. In fact, multiple tests have shown that aluminum can last up to 10 years even with frequent exposure to extreme and harsh weather conditions.
- Convenience – When setting up a radiant heat barrier, there’s no need remove any existing insulation. It can complement most types of insulation system.
- Comfort – Take advantage of extreme comfort throughout the year. Almost instantly, you will feel the change in temperature as your home’s interior remains cooler during the summer months, and warm and cozy during the cold seasons. You will also avoid the sudden increase of humid temperatures as a result of inconsistent interior temperature.
- Savings – Save up to 40% on your heating and cooling consumption. The hundreds of dollars you save annually will pay for the investment you’ve made with radiant barriers quickly.
