A homeowner from Jericho had requested a free home energy assessment. This home would greatly benefit from proper insulation. We used a radiant barrier to help improve this home. A radiant barrier is a reflective surface that gets installed on the vertical walls with insulation. By using a radiant barrier it could make as much as a 15 or 20 degree difference in the temperature of this attic. A radiant barrier actually reflects the heat energy back towards its source. This will make the home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It will also help save on the cost of utilities.
