A radiant barrier works to reflect up to 97 percent of the radiant heat that builds up in your attic. In most homes, this radiant heat build-up is the primary cause of home energy waste. Installing radiant barrier in your attic saves you money.
Solar attic fans
When an attic is poorly ventilated there is a moisture build-up due to your everyday activities such as showering and cooking. Moisture build-up promotes the growth and infestation of fungi. This can lead to decay or damage in your roof frame. Adding a solar fan as a home improvement ensures that your attic is properly ventilated and any moisture in the air is quickly removed.
