Attic Blanket - Radiant Barrier Overview 
For Electric & Natural Gas Customers

This thin film made of reflective material reflects the solar radiant heat coming through the roof and into your attic, allowing your home to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, saving natural gas and electricity costs.

There are several ways to install a blanket; new homes can have the blanket attached directly onto the roof sheathing under the shingles. You can also install the blanket's radiant barrier with the foil face down drooping between the roof rafters. The U.S. Department of Energy strongly recommends that you NOT apply the blanket directly on top of your attic floor insulation because the insulation is more susceptible to dust accumulation and may also trap moisture during cold weather. Learn about radiant barriers on the U.S. Department of Energy website.
