Radiant Barriers

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.

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 typically by 10 to 15%
  • Extends the life of your cooling equipment by reducing its cooling load
  • Increases the value of your home
  • Improves the efficiency of existing insulation
  • Boosts home or business comfort levels
  • Keeps attic air conditioning units and ductwork cooler (when located in the attic)
  • Works well on existing structures and new construction alike

How Radiant Barriers Work

This effective energy-efficiency product helps reduce cooling costs by reducing summer heat gains down. Radiant barriers reflect radiant heat, instead of absorbing heat. Applying a radiant barrier acts similarly to having your roof in the shade, 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 faces an open air space. Our expert technicians at Brower Mechanical are diligent about installing the radiant barrier so that it minimizes dust accumulation, making the surface as reflective as possible for the highest level of performance.

Installing the Most Effective Radiant Barrier on the Market

Brower Mechanical installs the HeatBloc-Ultra radiant heat barrier coating. It has the lowest emissivity rating of 0.19 of any liquid product available, resulting in the highest level of reflectivity. Testing by the Reflective Insulation Manufacturers Association found that HeatBloc is the most effective product available on the market.

HeatBloc can shield 81% of the sun’s heat from your home or business. The new Ultra product has almost no odor and very low VOCs levels, so it is an environmentally-friendly product that is safe for you home.

Pete and Drew, the 2 installers, were prompt, arriving at 8:00 am and working diligently to install my new heat and air system. Both were very courteous, everything was done with little fuss and muss. 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 reservation. Thank you.
