He put light extensively on the importance of colour and radiant barriers
in heat avoidance, insulation in reducing energy usage, solar responsive design and conservation of solar light for whole the year.
The company also handles custom-built replacement windows, radiant barriers
, ventilation, fences, gutters, interior and exterior painting, and more.
techniques consist of; gypsum board false ceiling, gypsum board with aluminum foil on the back, paper board false ceiling, and thermo pole false ceiling.
But owner Ker Thomson faced a steep learning curve and soon found himself swimming in complex concepts, from radiant barriers
to heat transfer.
Along with AirRenew, Lovett Homes makes healthier air and green living a priority by using Energy-Star Appliances and air conditioners, tankless hot water heaters and radiant barriers
on the roofs.
Many buildings with existing roof insulation may, already have radiant barriers
in the aluminum foil attached to fiberglass.
The performance of radiant barriers
has also been studied, showing that it lowers the heat transfer through the ceiling by 25%-30%, but this effect decreases significantly as the outside ventilation rates are increased through the attic space (Moujaes and Alsaiegh 2000).
section]) Now that the codes call for R-49 in cold climates and R-38 pretty much everywhere else, this radiant transfer becomes too small to care much about, so radiant barriers
are hard to justify at these attic ceiling insulation levels.
With promises of huge energy savings, it should come as no surprise that homeowners, business owners, and builders in southern states--where the last two summers have seen record-breaking temperatures--have started incorporating radiant barrier
products in their homes Some local governments have even gone so far as to require that all new homes be equipped with radiant barriers

Growth will be concentrated in the South and West regions, as structures in those regions are more often exposed to sunlight, and thus best benefit from the use of radiant barriers
and reflective insulation.
Upgrades may include solar attic vents, radiant barriers
, and/or insulation, and all participants will receive energy efficiency kits.
