For Electric & Natural Gas Customers
An attic blanket, sometimes referred to as a solar blanket, absorbs heat which allows your home to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Some builders attach the blanket barrier directly onto the roof sheathing. An attic blanket installed on top of attic floor insulation is more susceptible to dust accumulation and may also trap moisture in fiber insulation during cold weather. The U.S. Department of Energy strongly recommends that you NOT apply the blanket directly on top of your attic floor insulation.
