RADIANT BARRIER SERVICE BY Radiant Barrier San Jose
Radiant barriers keep the heat from the sun out of your home. Heat is transferred from the sun into your home using three methods: conduction, convection, and radiation. These three types of heat differ in the way that molecules react to heat, but radiation heat (or radiant heat) has to do with the thermal energy that travels as electromagnetic waves. Radiant barrier installation has to do with protecting your home against this third type of heat using reflective materials.
MAKE YOUR ATTIC YOURS AGAIN
For homes in hot climates, like those of many of our customers in San Jose, a radiant heat barrier can help trap in cold air and help our customers avoid overspending on energy bills as a result of huge air conditioning costs. Radiant barriers work by inhibiting radiant heat gain. Radiant energy from the sun heats your roof. The energy travels through your roof assembly by conduction. The hot surface on the underside of your roof, in your attic, radiates heat onto cooler surfaces in your attic, such as your air ducts and the floor of the attic. Radiant barrier materials work to prevent the radiant energy traveling from the hot roof deck to your air ducts and attic floor.
WHO YOU GONNA CALL? Radiant Barrier San Jose
This protective layer is created with the help of radiant barrier insulation, which can be installed during new construction as well as in existing homes. Unlike thermal insulation, like fiberglass batts or blown cellulose, radiant barrier insulation has no R-value and is usually made of foil. Radiant barriers are installed in the attic by stapling the material to the underside of the roof deck, normally on the rafters.

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.
