You may have heard about radiant barrier, especially if you live in the hot city of San Antonio, Texas. But what is radiant barrier, and what are the benefits of having it installed in your home?
Radiant barrier is a type of insulation that can be installed on its own or in combination with another type of insulation to help stabilize the internal temperature of a home. Unlike other forms of insulation that try to prevent conduction and convection heat transfer, it works by preventing radiant heat transfer – the number one type of heat transfer into and out of homes. The barrier actually deflects radiant heat waves, which blocks heat out of your home in the summer and keeps heat inside your home in the winter.
In addition to temperature stabilization, there are other benefits to having radiant barrier installed in your San Antonio, Texas, home, such as:
- Reduced strain on your HVAC system, which increases your home’s energy efficiency and can lead to lower energy bills
- It requires no annual maintenance, and never has to be replaced
- It contains no asthma-causing fibers or harmful gases
- No risk of moisture damage, mildew, or bacteria growth
