How Radiant Barriers Can Save You Money

Sun Chuter Radiant Barrier installed between roof trussesWhy add a radiant barrier?

Adding Dr. Energy Saver's SunChuter radiant barrier will have a great effect on your cooling bills because the SunChuter is designed to create an air space above it and reflects heat away from the attic before it can reach the insulation and ceiling below. Sun Chuter is a 3/8" thick foam product with foil laminateed to both sides. It carries an R-value of 3.3

Without a radiant barrier, your roof radiates the sun's heat to the insulation and your air conditioning ducts. The insulation absorbs the radiant heat and  transfers it to the ceiling. This heat gain makes your air conditioner run longer and use more electricity.

In Florida the roof can reach 148°F and the attic air can be more than 120°. Heat from the hot attic roof radiates into the living space. A radiant barrier will block 95 percent of the heat radiated down by the roof before it reaches the insulation.

SunChuter radiant barrier is placed in the attic space to block radiant heat from your hot Florida roof. It is stapled to the sides of the roof trusses just below your decking.

With the proper level of insulation for Florida, adequate ventilation and a SunChuter radiant barrier you can reduce heat gain through the ceiling by 40%. Your home will be more comfortable and more energy efficient!
