Radiant Barrier Installations in Los Angeles

A radiant barrier is a form of insulation that can be installed in both residential and commercial buildings. Each barrier is made from an extremely reflective material, such as aluminum foil, and many products are fiber-reinforced to extend their durability.

The primary purpose of radiant barriers is to reduce radiant heat gain in the summer, which also lowers overall cooling costs. This occurs because the reflective exterior of radiant barriers minimizes the transfer of heat from the surface of your roof to your attic.

Benefits of a Radiant Barrier in Los Angeles

Reduce heat in the attic

It’s impossible to overstate the value of reducing heat build-up in your attic. Radiant barriers can lower the temperature of your attic by up to 30°F, which allows your heating and cooling systems to operate more efficiently.

Extend the lifespan of your A/C

In lower temperatures, your heating and cooling system requires fewer cycle times. By preventing the unnecessary accumulation of heat in your attic, radiant barriers can actually extend the life of your A/C and may even reduce A/C requirements by up to ½ ton.

Take advantage of the SoCal climate

The high temperatures and sunny weather of Southern California make radiant barriers even more effective than they are in colder climates. In fact, some studies have shown that installing a radiant barrier in Los Angeles could reduce your cooling costs by 5% to 10%.

Decrease overall insulation costs

Radiant barriers are remarkably affordable, particularly when they are compared to other popular insulation materials like spray foam. Experts have estimated that radiant barriers can actually pay for themselves through energy savings within 4-5 years.
