For optimal energy efficiency, an attic design solution should address all three forms of heat transfer that occurs in an attic space:
On a typical summer day, with an outdoor temperature between 90 to 100 degrees, the temperature in an attic space without radiant barrier can easily reach 140+ degrees.
Adding a RadiantGUARD radiant barrier and an active ventilation system to an attic will drop the temperature of the attic down close to the outside temperature (see middle temperature in LIVE video above).
With sufficient conventional insulation on the attic floor, you can further slow down this heat from making its way into the living spaces below and thereby reduce the amount of time your air conditioning system runs resulting in lower electric bills and a more confortable home. In an energy efficient attic designed by RadiantGUARD-PSG, it's not unusual for the temperature under the attic floor insulation to be BELOW the outdoor temperature (see bottom temperature in LIVE video above).
