Energy Efficiency Made Easier with Radiant Barrier

 

Radiant Heat And Your Design Tech Home

When the sun beats down on your home, heat builds up in the roofing materials. Some of this heat is transferred into your attic and eventually reaches your indoor living areas. This type of heat transfer, known as “radiant heat,” is as natural as the seasons. But it can create temperature variations inside your home and cause your cooling system to work harder. That’s a heavy price to pay in lost comfort and wasted energy dollars.

What Is A Radiant Barrier?
A radiant barrier is a layer of reflective material installed in a home to redirect the radiant heat created by the sun. In warm weather, a radiant barrier blocks radiant heat from entering a home. This increases the efficiency of your attic-installed air handling system, resulting in increased energy savings and lower energy costs.

The Smart Choice For Your New Design Tech Home
If you’re like most people, your home is your biggest investment. That’s why many smart choices have already been made while your home is being built. You’ll be offered a variety of options and enhancements during planning and construction. Many will appeal to you, some won’t. But there’s one product you should make sure is built into your new home: LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing. It’s the smart, simple way to boost energy efficiency and lower your monthly cooling costs.

The Roof Sheathing With A Silver Lining
DTH installs LP TechShield sheathing just like conventional roof sheathing. But unlike conventional sheathing, LP TechShield sheathing features a thin, durable layer of aluminum laminated to our OSB roof sheathing. This creates a highly effective radiant barrier because it helps block radiant heat from entering your home. That’s built-in savings that start immediately and last for years to come. And an easy way to enhance the value of your home!

Patented VaporVents™ Technology Prevents Moisture Build-Up During And After Construction
Only LP TechShield sheathing features VaporVents™ technology. Created with our patented post lamination foil incising process, it allows LP TechShield panels to dry more quickly than other radiant barrier panels when moisture occurs during construction. It also allows for continued moisture evaporation after installation. No other brand of radiant barrier sheathing offers this unique, important feature.

Block The Sun And Save
In the summer, the sun turns your attic into an oven. Fortunately, LP TechShield sheathing can block up to 97% of radiant heat transfer through roof sheathing, reducing attic temperature by up to 30° F. That creates cooler rooms below and increases the efficiency of your in-attic air handling system. So you save energy summer after summer.

Warranty
LP TechShield Radiant Barrier Sheathing is backed by a 20-Year Transferable Limited Warranty. So you get two decades of peace-of-mind protection, with the ability to pass on the remaining coverage to your buyer if you sell your home. Talk to DTH about LP TechShield Radiant Barrier Sheathing.
