The Energy Efficient Insulation Solution

Radiant barriers are materials with reflective surfaces designed to reflect radiant energy and help lower cooling costs. They provide an effective method for reducing heat transfer through floors, roofs, and walls.

Installed radiant barriers are metal sheets or films established in various configurations on roof or floor surfaces above unheated areas to reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss. They are effective in many climates but particularly in climates like the San Francisco Bay Area.

Help your attic stay cooler in the summer and reduce heat transfer through your walls to help prevent heat loss. Radiant barriers are most effective when they are installed directly against insulation. In some cases, you may need to install a plywood or drywall radiant barrier over the insulation.

Benefits of Radiant Barrier Insulation


California's Recommended Insulation R-Value

Did you know? The Bay Area and much of California’s population live in Zone 3, which requires an R-value between 30 and 60 for attic insulation. Since each home is different, it’s advised that a professional installer looks at your attic to determine its current R-value and help you determine the steps that are needed to bring it up to code.

Attic Insulation Replacement with Radiant Barrier Insulation

If you need attic insulation replacement or removal in Oakland, Walnut Creek, San Lorenzo, Hayward, Pleasant Hill, Concord, CA, or the surrounding areas, you should consider radiant barrier insulation. Removing your old insulation in attics and replacing it with high-quality radiant barrier insulation is one of the best ways to reduce your energy bills and improve the comfort and air quality of your home.

Radiant barrier insulation materials are highly reflective. In many cases, it works by reflecting the radiant heat from the sun, preventing it from reaching your roof or walls and transferring into the crawl space of your home.

Radiant Barrier Insulation Installation

The best time to install radiant barrier insulation is during new construction, but it can also be added to existing homes.

During new construction, you can install radiant barrier insulation between the roof and ceiling drywall or above the finished flooring in a home with an attic.

These products are designed to attach with staples, nails, and screws, but they can also be installed without any fasteners in some cases. It is best to consult the manufacturer’s recommendations before installing them in this way.

Our experts at Aircom can install or remove your insulation to make sure that you get the best results. If mold has developed during the original installation of insulation, we can remediate it and prevent any future growth using antimicrobial treatments.
