If you’ve ever kept reptiles, you know the need to put a heat source at the top of the cage or terrarium.
Maybe on cold winter nights you’ve used en electric blanket.
You know the advantages of creating a heat source from above when and where needed.
However, you wouldn’t heat your attic on a hot day because you know when your attic is hotter, your house is hotter.
Yet when you have a dark roof on a hot summer day, you are doing just that.
The radiant energy of the sun’s rays (particularly the infrared component) beating down on a hot roof is just like putting an electric blanket over your house.
It can make your home unbearably hot.
However, there is an answer.
The answer is a radiant barrier.
A radiant barrier is nothing more and nothing less than a very thick metal foil (it’s kind of a cloth and kind of a metal) specifically made for installation in attics.
It’s purpose is to reflect the radiant energy back away from your home.
They work amazingly well.
Here is a link to an article that explains a little more about how radiant barriers work.
