What is radiant heat and how does it impact the temperature of my home?
All of the heat from the sun is transferred to the earth in the form of radiant heat, radiant heat travels at the speed of light until it is either absorbed or reflected. Radiant heat is the invisible energy that is transferred without direct contact from a hot object to a cooler object.
In your home, radiant heat from the sun will transfer through your roof into the attic, your attic insulation acts as a barrier to help prevent the heat from transferring into your home, but without insulation or radiant barrier over the attic entrance, the heat travels directly into your home. This heat transfer will make your heating/cooling system work harder and can cause hot/cold spots in your home.
If you have ever been under a shade tree on a hot summer day, you know first hand how effective a radiant barrier can be.
