Our reflective attic foil and radiant barrier technology can be installed in your attic to reflect heat. This means that in the winter, as heat rises and escapes a home through the attic, Think Smart’s reflective insulation will reflect that heat back into the home. Conversely, in the summer, as the heat from the sun radiates into the attic, Think Smart’s reflective insulation will reflect that heat back out. The results are a warmer home in the winter and a cooler home in the summer.
The technology behind Think Smart’s reflective insulation was actually developed years ago by NASA. As they searched for ways to protect the astronauts from temperatures ranging from -273 degrees to +238 degrees Celsius, NASA found that a thin sheet of aluminum foil radiant barrier would do the same job as a seven-foot thick piece of conventional insulation.
