Ever thought there was a more efficient way to facilitate climate control throughout your house, as big as it may be? Or how about your office building? Or any other building for that matter, like shopping malls or retail stores? After all, humanity has come up with so many breathtaking inventions and has actually set foot on the moon, so why not find a means to mitigate heat transfer, enjoy easier temperature control and save a few bucks while you're at it?
The good news is, that it has. Mankind has come up with such an ingenious yet simple solution.
Introducing Radiant Barrier
You might be thinking about elaborate air conditioning systems or industrial heaters for larger spaces. You might be thinking about fans that cool the air or about refreshing water spray cooling fans. You'd probably be right considering all those wonderful inventions, but the one thing that's common to all of them is that they're active solutions that require a calculated action. Meaning, that if you do not intentionally turn them on nothing will happen. Radiant barrier, on the other hand, is a passive contraption, that's once installed, just keeps going and going, taking care of business for you without requiring you to do a single thing.
What is Radiant Barrier?
Radiant barrier is an insulation means aimed at mitigating heat transfer. It's a physical contraption mostly installed in attics whose sole purpose is to deflect heat that comes in contact with it. The beautiful thing about it is that it helps in keeping the temperature within the building it's installed in. Imagine it's winter outside and you're trying to keep your house warm. But we all know that heat moves from where it's hot to where it's less hot. That means that the heat in your house will try to find its way outside. But when it hits the barrier you had installed, it bounces off it and stays within your house. The same goes when the situation is the other way around – when it's hot outside and you're trying to keep your house cool. The heat that will try to make its way in will hit your radiant barrier and will mostly remain outside. Sounds great, right?
