Attic & HVAC Home Insulation
Before & After Insulation
Radiant (or Thermal) Barrier was designed to protect our NASA astronauts from the +250 to -450 degree temperature extremes in outer space.
Reflective Comfort works with Thermal Barrier to insulate attic spaces. This home insulation is up to 9 times more effective & efficient than standard blown-in or rolled-in attic insulation, regardless of the amount. Standard insulation is not designed to handle radiant heat.
Don'y have an attic to insulate? No worries! Reflective Comfort also offers Premium Insulated Paint, which can be applied to flat roofs, as well as the interior and exterior of a home to maximize its protection and lower your energy costs.
A Much Cooler Home Without Running an Air Conditioner
The average home picks up 89-93% of heat gain through the attic in the summer time. Standard insulation, regardless of the amount, blocks only 10% of the 130+ degree attic heat. We install Thermal Barrier in your attic to reduce summer heat gain and reduce cooling costs. The product is a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. Radiant Barrier blocks 94-97% of the attic heat!
A Much Warmer Home in the Winter
In the winter time, the standard home loses 70-80% the heat through the attic. It’s typically 8-12 degrees warmer at the ceiling. Thermal barrier reflects the heat back down, giving a much warmer home and even temperature throughout your home, while reducing utilities up to 52%.
What is Radiant Heat?
The sun heats the earth through radiation. Since there is no medium (like the gas in our atmosphere) in space, radiation is the primary way that heat travels in space. While conduction is the transfer of heat energy by direct contact, convection is the movement of heat by actual motion of matter; radiation is the transfer of energy with the help of electromagnetic waves. Radiant heat travels in a straight line away from any surface and heats anything solid that absorbs its energy.

Climate Change in Colorado Springs
Jeff Lukas, research integration specialist at Western Water Assessment, a NOAA Funded program at University of Colorado-Boulder, recently spoke about how climate change will transform Colorado Springs. "We can generate some very fine scale information from the climate models," he explained, "and the temperature part of it is very trustworthy because we expect a fairly uniform warming across the state." He observed that Colorado Springs "summers have gotten really hot and even in May we're getting too many 90 degree days."
Examples of Everyday Products Using Radiant Barrier
Some of the spin off products of radiant barrier are, thermos bottles, chocolate candy wrappers, reflective windows in office buildings, emergency blankets, fire shelters for fire fighters & smoke jumpers, containers for pizza delivery... The list is seemingly endless!

You can have a comfortable home this season too!
Our utility bills are down by 47%.
In the winter we no longer have cold or chilly rooms in our home.

Thank you, again.
When the outside temperature hits 92-94 degrees, the inside temperature is 76 degrees.
My degree is from Texas A & M in electrical engineering. My career was 43 years with the Corps of Engineers. We installed your product in many of the government buildings on military bases.
Prior to installing thermo barrier in my house, the upper areas of my house were extremely hot & uncomfortable in the summer. I can honestly say your product works and works well! When the outside temperature hits 92-94 degrees, the inside temperature is 76 degrees.
In the winter I used to have cold areas. No more! I have the same temperature on all levels. My furnace runs 33-54% less.
