Radiant Barriers

duct insulation

Sacramento-area attics can overheat, driving up your cooling bills. From Elk Grove to Granite Bay, the energy-efficiency experts at Brower Mechanical are skilled in providing summer comfort solutions for a reasonable price.

The hot Sacramento sun can beat down on your home and heat up your attic to unbelievable temperatures during hot summer days. This can boost your cooling costs and degrade home comfort. Stop the transfer of heat with a radiant barrier for your attic.

The Benefits of a Radiant Barrier

Radiant barriers are highly effective in our hot Sacramento climate, where we have a long cooling season. Radiant barriers in the Sacramento area can:

  • Lower air conditioning costs by 10 to 15%
  • Extends the life of your cooling equipment by reducing its cooling load
  • Increase the value of your home
  • Improves the effectiveness of existing insulation
  • Increases the comfort of your home or business
  • Keep attic air conditioning units & ductwork cooler (when located in the attic)
  • Works well on existing structures & new construction alike

How Radiant Barriers Work

This effective energy-efficiency product helps reduce cooling costs by reducing any summer heat gains. Radiant barriers will reflect heat, instead of absorbing it. Applying a radiant barrier will have your home feeling like it is fully shaded, when in fact it is in full sun.

To be effective, the radiant barrier is applied to the bottom side of roof decks, primed or coated metal roofs, or rafters and joists directly attached to roof – with the reflective surface facing an open air space. Our expert technicians at Brower Mechanical are diligent about installing radiant barriers so that they minimize dust accumulation, making the surface as reflective as possible for the highest level of performance.

Pete and Drew, the 2 installers, were prompt, arriving at 8:00 am and working diligently to install my new heat and air system. They worked very hard, especially muscling that old unit into their truck with all the various pieces and parts. I would recommend Brower Mechanical to anyone without hesitation.
