The roof of your home is a direct attraction to the sun, especially during the summer months. With the heat beating down on your roof, it causes the inside of your attic to be super hot. This of course increases energy costs, as your HVAC system has to work harder to produce cold air and keep up to your desired temperature inside the home. Radiant barriers are beneficial in the summer months to help reflect radiant heat and cool down your attic interior.
