How Do Reflective Insulation Products Work in Buildings?

Radiant heat is one of the three ways that heat is transferred, and it is the primary mode of heat transfer in buildings. It occurs when infrared rays cross air spaces from one surface to another. Whereas mass insulation slows down heat transfer, reflective insulation and radiant barrier products feature a highly reflective film that can block up to 97 percent of radiant heat transfer, therefore...
