Radiant Barrier—The Home Energy Efficiency Solution for Canyon Lake, TX, Homeowners
It gets hot in Canyon Lake, Texas, and when temperatures peak in the warm months, energy usage can spiral out of control as your HVAC unit runs overtime trying to keep the interior of your home cool. At Texas Pro Insulators, we offer home energy efficiency solutions that can help streamline energy usage and deliver significant savings on monthly energy bills. Our most important offering toward that aim is radiant barrier.
What Is Radiant Barrier?
Radiant barrier is a type of attic insulation that, instead of keeping heat out of your home, reflects heat out of your attic. You may not think much about how your attic can affect home energy efficiency, but considering that temperatures inside your attic can reach up to 150 degrees in the dead of summer, it’s easy to see how that extreme heat can work against the efforts of your HVAC unit. By reflecting heat out of your attic, radiant barrier can drop the interior temperature by as much as 50 degrees!
Benefits of a Cooler Attic
A cooler attic helps the entire house de-stress and makes it easier for your HVAC to maintain a comfortable interior. In fact, with radiant barrier installed in your attic, you may notice that air blows colder through the air conditioning vents, and rooms that tend to stay warm become cooler. And while you’ll appreciate a more comfortable home, you’ll certainly be happy with lower monthly energy costs—we’ve seen reductions in energy usage of up to 35% after we’ve installed radiant barrier in our customers’ homes.
