Lower temperatures, greater comfort Plytanium Thermostat Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing can lower peek attic temperatures up to 30°F by reducing summer radiant heat gain into the attic. Best of all, less heat is transferred into the living space through the ceiling, so indoor temperatures stay cool and comfortable while your cooling sys-tem may operate with greater energy efficiency. Studies have shown that radiant barriers can reduce cooling energy consumption by up to 17%, depending on the design of the building, insulation levels, ventilation, occupancy, lifestyles and geographic location.1 Since temperatures inside the attic are reduced, attic mounted air conditioning equipment and duct systems may work more efficiently. Please note: Radiant barriers may interfere with attic mounted antenna.
