While most homes have one of many different types of conventional insulation (fiberglass, cellulose, rockwool, etc), attic insulation alone cannot stop the transfer of heat into your home. Conventional attic insulation is designed to absorb heat up to a certain amount. Once the insulation absorbs as much heat as it can (it’s saturation level), the heat is then quickly transferred out the opposite side through the ceiling and walls into your home. And in the evening after the temperature outside has cooled down, that insulation sitting on your attic floor is still passing heat into your home require your air conditioner to work longer than necessary to cool of your house.
Because radiant heat accounts for the majority of heat gain and loss in a home, a radiant barrier is needed to combat with the type of heat. A radiant barrier stapled under the attic roof can block most of this radiant heat from entering the attic significantly cooling the space and allowing the insulation on the attic floor to more effectively work with less heat.
Customers feel an immediate difference in their attic space after we install radiant barrier. With a cooler attic, electric bills are quickly lowered and your air conditioning system is less taxed.
Using Radiant Barrier Burlingame Ultima-foil radiant barrier, we staple directly to the underside of your roof rafters and on all gable walls to create a blockade between the outdoors and the inside of your attic space. With a reflectivity of 97% of the radiant heat, it offers the highest reflectivity available in the market along with a LIFETIME warranty. It is a thin double-sided pure aluminum material (about the thickness of a business card) that is strong and durable and impossible to tear with hands due to a middle fabric scrim layer. With perforations making it “breathable”, our radiant barrier allows moisture-vapor to pass through it which is important in an attic space where moisture generated within the home collects and passes out of the attic space with attic ventilation.
Why Radiant Barrier Burlingame is the Best Radiant Barrier Insulation
Radiant barrier insulation is an insulation product that incorporates fiberglass, along with a foil facing and interior facing, to protect against radiant heat loss and gain in buildings. It can be utilized in both metal buildings and post frame structures. It can be installed below the roof and above the purlins or roof members, as well as below the purlins and in the walls. It provides light reflectivity, which can reduce additional lighting requirements, achieves a great look, and improves the overall energy efficiency of a building.

Air ducts get damaged from a number of factors such as age, poor design, and rodent damage.
Damaged duct work or air duct leaks affect the indoor environment in two main ways:
Cold air is lost before it effectively cools the indoor space. This makes your HVAC system work harder, using more energy and driving your utility bills up.
