The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat outward rather than absorbing it. By reflecting the heat outward, the cooler temperatures are preserved in your attic, reducing the overall penetration of heat into your home. Radiant barriers are usually used in hotter climates like Texas and even more often if the cooling ducts are located in the attic of the home.
A radiant barrier’s effectiveness depends on proper installation, so it’s best to use a certified installer. The certified technicians at Mairathon know exactly where to install the barrier and in what position to maximize the reflective qualities and keep your home cooler.
