The radiant barrier is a very common insulation type. It is less pricey compared to most types of insulation and it is also fairly easy to install. Because of its simplicity, many homeowners believe that they can install radiant barriers on their own. While that may be true to some extent, if you really want effective insulation for your home, it is still most ideal to reach out to a licensed contractor.
Made with a reflective material that reflects the heat of the sun instead of absorbing it, radiant barriers are effective in keeping the heat out of a home especially during hot summer days. While it’s not as effective as spray foam and other thicker insulation materials in keeping a home warm during the colder season, it is still a cost-efficient way to keep energy bills low on a monthly basis. Furthermore, it is very helpful in keeping one’s home more comfortable especially in the summer.
Materials to DIY radiant barriers are readily available on the market. Better yet, there are plenty of online resources that one can find to get step-by-step instructions on installing radiant barriers. However, it’s not that simple to actually make this type of insulation as effective as it should be. Experience and expertise are still vital, which gives you all the more reason to call a licensed insulation contractor.
