Radiant Barrier in Utah
Radiant Barrier Technology provides a new way insulate a home. Traditional insulation works by slowing down the rate as which warm air leaves a home. Radiant Barriers actually reflect the heat back the way it came. The usual method for measuring insulation’s effectiveness is rated using an R-value. The R-value is a measurement that describes the thermal resistance of a material. With the R-value you can determine the rate at which heat is exchanged through conduction (heat transferred directly by touch), and convection (heat transferred through the air). The Radiant Barrier works by reflecting radiant heat (heat emitted by objects directly). The measurement for the effectiveness of The Radiant Barrier is called an E-value. The E-value is a number between 0 and 1 that determines how much radiant heat a material absorbs. A low E-value means the object does not absorb very much heat, but rather reflects it back to its source.
Our Radiant Barrier Technology has an E-value of .05, meaning it reflects 95% of the heat back to its origin. When installed in a home or commercial building, it will reflect the heat inside the house back inside during the winter, and will reflect heat from the sun back outside the house during the summer. You should notice a decrease in your utility bills, and at the same time experience much more comfortable living conditions.
Story Behind Radiant Barriers
Radiant Barriers have been around for a long time, but they became known when NASA began using them in their space program. NASA used radiant barriers in astronaut spacesuits and to protect sensitive equipment from the extremities of space. The earliest space suits had the reflective layer on the outside. Radiant barriers were later found to work on the inside of the suit as well. Today, radiant barriers are used in several kinds of insulating products, including home and commercial insulation.
Our Radiant Barriers are 100% made in the USA. There are many other “bargain brand” radiant barrier manufactures that don’t manufacture all or any of parts of their product in the US, and as a result produce hazardous and low-quality, quickly degrading products. Our Radiant Barriers are designed specifically to prevent mold and oxidation, both of which decrease the safety and effectiveness of the barrier. The Barriers also have the highest fire safety standards and unmatched tear strength, keeping your home safer and better insulated.
RADIAWRAP – $99.99
A hot water heater continually loses heat and then uses a significant amount of energy to reheat the water after it has cooled. As a result, water heaters represent a substantial part of a homeowner’s energy bill.
RadiaWrap works by reflecting heat back into the water heater. It can be used on both gas and electric water heaters. RadiaWrap can save up to 20% on hot water heating costs. Payback on investment is only 1-2 years! In addition, with water that stays hotter longer, homeowners gain more hot water without buying a bigger tank.
You can choose our do-it-yourself kit or have one of our professional installers do it for you.
RadiaFilm is an ultra-transparent film applied directly to the interior of windows in a home or commercial business to form a protective barrier against the sun’s harmful infrared and ultraviolet radiation. RadiaFilm incorporates a revolutionary new “spectrally-selective” nano-ceramic coating to create the industry’s first full line of nano-ceramic film that lets the maximum light in while keeping the destructive infrared heat and UV rays out.
RadiaFilm transmits up to 85% visible light while eliminating more than 99% of the infrared heat. This helps keep the temperature in your home and office more comfortable. The reduction in UV radiation and infrared heat creates balanced cooling; this helps eliminate hot and cold spots without needing to overuse your air conditioner, resulting in year-round energy savings. The product is also less reflective than glass itself, which enhances your view both day and night.
RADIADOORS – $150.00
The radiant barrier Garage Door Kit works by reflecting 95% of the heat that seeks to penetrate your garage doors. Garage doors are poorly insulated, or sometimes not insulated at all. The result is a garage that can be unbearably hot in the summer and cold in winter months. Reflecting the heat that enters or leaves through a garage door keeps the garage much cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The radiant barrier Garage Door Kit can be installed by the customer or by our professional installers within minutes.
Our installers can do custom work to fit any size of garage door.
