In terms of safeguarding our homes from the weather, we tend to focus on insulation against the cold. In the dead of winter, the importance of well-sealed windows is obvious to anybody who has experienced it.

However, did you know that there are ways to keep your home cooler in the summer as well?

It is possible to minimize cooling expenditures in the summer months by installing a heat shield in the attic with insulation.

Radiant barriers are not the same as insulation. In order to get the best resistance to heat and cold, radiant barriers line the roofline and assist the insulation. The insulation is still needed. Radiant barriers should not be a replacement for attic insulation.
