Radiant Barrier in Fort Wayne, Elkhart & Crown Point, IN
During the summer, the sun beating down on a roof can increase cooling costs significantly, especially for homes with air ducts in the attic. A radiant barrier can help to reflect some of that heat, reducing utility costs and leaving the home cooler. If you are considering a radiant barrier for your home in Fort Wayne, Elkhart, Crown Point or the surrounding areas, talk to our experts at Momper Insulation.

What is a Radiant Barrier?
Radiant barriers are reflective foil materials that are applied to the underside of your roof, facing towards the attic. As the sun strikes your roof and heats your shingles, the surface works to reflect much of that energy away, keeping the radiant transfer of heat into the attic, air ducts and surrounding materials to a minimum. The radiant barrier can be applied to existing roof structures using foil-faced cardboard, foam, plastic sheeting or to new construction using foil-faced OSB or rigid foam sheathing.
Do Radiant Barriers Actually Work?
Radiant barriers keep a significant portion of the heat from the roof out of your attic, leaving it and its contents cooler. When your attic is cooler, less heat will be transferred into the rest of your home or into any air ducts that are located in the attic. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a radiant barrier can reduce cooling costs by up to 10%, plus it can help to prevent some heat loss in the winter. Other benefits include:
- Reduced energy consumption
- Lower environmental footprint
- Improved comfort
- Reduced HVAC workload
- Improved HVAC performance and service life
