How do radiant barriers boost the effectiveness of HVAC systems?
While you’re busy preparing your heating and cooling equipment for the winter months, you can also get a head start on getting the most of your summer HVAC systems. Fall is the perfect time of year to have radiant barriers installed in your attic. These reflective panels maximize your cooling costs by keeping the temperature inside your home relatively low and consistent. Here’s all you need to know to take advantage of this thrifty new technology:
• Fogel Services can install radiant barriers in existing structures. However, it is easier to have contractors install the panels during construction, but the panels function just as effectively when installed as an upgrade. At Fogel Services, we have both the experience and the knowledge to get the job done correctly without a major expense to homeowners.
• According to the University of Central Florida’s Solar Energy Center, radiant barriers lower yearly cooling bills by 8 to 12 percent for homeowners in the Southeast. They also help to keep homes more comfortable by blocking 95 percent of the solar heat directed at a roof, providing consumers with a double benefit.
• Self-installation can be difficult and confusing. Fogel Services employs certified installers who understand how to get the most from your radiant barrier investment. When doing the job yourself, it’s easy to make a costly mistake. For instance, you probably wouldn’t guess that one-sided foil barriers should have the metallic side facing down, away from the roof. Work with experts who are experienced, knowledgeable, and equipped with the tools for the job.
