What is a Radiant Barrier?

A radiant barrier is a type of building product that reflects thermal radiation and reduces heat transfer. Since thermal energy is also transferred via conduction and convection, radiant barriers are often supplemented with thermal insulation products that slow down heat transfer via conduction or convection.

Triple H uses SilverGlo panels as a radiant barrier.

Each SilverGlo™ insulation panel is sealed to attic framing and to neighboring panels, creating a thick layer of insulation that includes a radiant barrier.

SilverGlo Installation.

A typical SuperAttic™ installation can be completed in one or two days, and is a permanent, no-maintenance, "green" home improvement.  

What is a Super Attic?

SuperAttic™ combines air sealing and attic insulation

The SuperAttic™ system from Triple H / Dr. Energy Saver eliminates the need to remove attic flooring and lose valuable attic storage space in order to make major energy-saving upgrades in the attic. The SuperAttic™ system utilizes proprietary SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation panels to fully seal and insulate the attic directly beneath the roof rafters and directly inside the gable ends.

The SuperAttic™ system creates a continuous air and insulation barrier directly beneath the attic roof, with no thermal bridging to compromise energy performance. With the SuperAttic™ system, roof ventilation is maintained without allowing exterior air to enter the attic space. As an added benefit, SilverGlo™ insulation panels include an integral radiant barrier that further reduces heating and cooling costs.

Our SuperAttic™ insulation system provides you with insulation you need without taking away storage space. Contact us today to discover if SuperAttic™ is right for you!

There are examples of a SuperAttic in our Before & After Photos.

What is the difference between attic roof insulation and attic floor insulation?

Attic insulation plays a critical role in any home's overall comfort and energy efficiency. It can be installed in one of two places: on the attic floor or beneath the attic roof.

Properly installed attic roof insulation can eliminate many air leaks that waste energy and make parts of your house uncomfortable. With attic roof insulation, you'll get excellent performance from ductwork located in your attic. You can also utilize your entire attic as storage space because the insulation is not on the attic floor.

Attic floor insulation is what most of us are familiar with.  Insulation on the floor of the attic can cut your heating & cooling costs and restore comfort to rooms that get too hot or too cold at different times of the year, and it's a once and done upgrade that won't wear out or require maintenance.

The experts at Tripleh H / Dr. Energy Saver are experienced in installing all types of attic roof insulation and attic floor insulation. If you're looking to upgrade your insulation, give us a call!
