Taking a hit from the heat
We all know that feeling, when it's high summer and the house just won't cool down. You turn on the air conditioning system at full power, wet the floor a little bit, make sure each and every window and door are shut tight, and pray for heavens above that the heat will give way, even just a tiny bit.
But nothing changes, except now you have a slippery floor.
What might be the cause?
When such a thing happens, and you're sure everything works just fine, chances are the problem is in your attic. You'd be surprised how many attics are poorly insulated and how many haven’t been insulated to begin with. When that's the case your house becomes amazingly susceptible to heat transfer. Meaning, that when it's hot outside and not as hot inside your house, the heat, following the rules of nature, will do everything it can to balance the temperature differences. If you have nothing installed to prevent it, the heat will eventually make its way through the roof, into the attic, and from there – into your house, rendering your air conditioning system quite useless.
Radiant barrier – pushing heat away
One of the more elegant, ingenious, and cost-effective solutions that have been invented by mankind, is radiant barrier. This physical contraption is installed within attics and serves a sole purpose. Due to its structure and the material it's made of, it simply deflects heat. Heat that will come through the roof will come in contact with it, and instead of moving through it and into the house it will simply be deflected back outside again, keeping your house at comfortable temperatures.
Furthermore, if you're trying to warm the house, your radiant barrier will prevent the heat from traveling outside and keep it in the house.
