Radiant Barriers: Superior Insulation for Your Home

Rising energy costs can leave homeowners scratching their heads. One of the biggest causes of temperature fluctuation in a home is heat gain and loss. If your home has an older style of insulation technology, you could find yourself paying more and more money to keep your HVAC system running as the seasons change. Luckily, with advancements in insulation technology, there are options for homeowners whose energy bills are getting out of hand. 

As a revolutionary insulation solution designed to combat heat loss and gain in areas with warmer-than-average climates, radiant barriers are a great choice for most homeowners. If you’re considering investing in radiant barriers for your home, take a moment to learn more about their benefits and how Bonney can help install them!

What are Radiant Barriers?

Radiant barriers are usually made from double-sided foil and work by employing a simple but effective principle: reflection. Unlike traditional insulation that slows down the rate of heat transfer in your home, radiant barriers actually reflect the heat from the sun away from your house.

Do Radiant Barriers Work All Year Long?

In the warmer months, when the sun warms up the roof of your house, all of that heat is transferred to your insulation and spreads throughout your home, raising the interior temperature and activating your HVAC system. When a radiant barrier is installed alongside traditional insulation, up to 97% of the sun’s heat is reflected, and the remaining 3% is then distributed as it would normally be without a radiant barrier. 

While this doesn’t mean that your energy bills will be reduced by 97%, that’s a massive amount of heat that isn’t making its way into your home and causing your air conditioning to work harder!

Radiant barriers also help keep your house warm during the colder months of the year. The heat your HVAC unit distributes throughout your home will move outwards through the floor, walls, and ceiling. Because radiant barriers are double-sided, the interior facing part will reflect that heat back into your home. As a result, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard, and you should see lower bills throughout the fall and winter.

When combined with properly installed, traditional insulation, radiant barriers can reduce the amount you save on heating and cooling by up to 10%, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars annually! 

Who Can Benefit From Radiant Barriers?

As a resident of Sacramento, you’re already well aware of how varied our climate can be. As you consider investing in radiant barriers, learn more about who can benefit from them below:

  • Homeowners With High Energy Bills: It can get hot in Sacramento once the spring and summer roll around. Radiant barriers are the perfect solution for any homeowner who wants to save some money on their air conditioning costs once it starts getting warmer out. If you’ve been trying to find a way to reduce energy costs in your home, now’s the perfect time to get a consultation on whether radiant barriers could be just the answer you’ve been looking for!
  • Energy Conscious Individuals: If your HVAC is running less, it will save you money and reduce the size of your home’s carbon footprint. Once radiant barriers are installed, they don’t use any consumables to operate and don’t cost any money to function. Since your HVAC system won’t be working as hard throughout the year due to the radiant barrier, the amount of energy needed to keep your home comfortable year-round will be much less than before.
  • Those Seeking Enhanced Comfort: Having to constantly fiddle with your home’s thermostat to get it comfortable can be a nightmare, and even when you do, there’s no guarantee it will stay at your desired temperature for long. Radiant barriers will keep your home comfortable more consistently than just traditional insulation, letting you enjoy spending time inside year-round, no matter what the weather is like.
