What Is Radiant Barrier Insulation?

Radiant barriers or radiant barrier insulation refers to the installation of a highly reflective material to reflect radiant heat rather than absorbing it or resisting it the way other forms of insulation might.

This can come in several forms, such as a layer of single-sided or double-sided foil installed in your attic or higher-tech solutions designed to stay dust-free through methods other than gravity.

Where To Use Radiant Barrier Insulation in the Home

Radiant barriers don’t reduce heat conduction themselves, like thermal insulation would, so they’re typically used in combination with such materials in places exposed to heavy sunlight. They also require some amount of air gap and need to be kept dust-free, making installation tricky in some areas.

This is why radiant barriers are primarily installed in the attic and less frequently in exterior walls that face the sun throughout the day.

Benefits of Radiant Barrier Insulation

Radiant barriers serve to prevent sunlight from penetrating the exterior of your home and becoming heat energy inside. It means that on sunny days, your Albany-area home is far less likely to struggle with staying cool and comfortable without running the air conditioner nonstop.

If the summer sun feels oppressive each year, a radiant barrier might be the solution you need.

Signs Your Home Needs More Insulation

Radiant barriers largely serve one specific purpose: Keeping sunlight from becoming heat inside your home on hot, sunny days. This means it should be quickly apparent if you have a problem that radiant barrier could help with:

  • Upper rooms or sun-facing rooms of your home are uncomfortably hot on sunny days
  • Air conditioner can’t keep up or costs too much to operate when it’s sunny out
  • You see signs of excess sunlight entering your home through your attic or exterior walls, i.e., bleaching and sun damage
