During hot months of the year the temperature in the attic may rise close to 130⁰ F. The attic space becomes a heat reservoir and the heat flows from the ceiling into the home's living space. If your home has inefficient attic insulation the electric bill will be extremely expensive.

We often see insulation that has been severely degraded as a result of age and animal infestation. Insects and animals such as squirrels, raccoon, and mice tend to make attics their home by entering through small openings and cracks into the attic.
Radiant barriers are very effective at reducing the South Florida heat that we all know too well. The barriers are made up of a material that helps in the reflection of heat instead of absorption. If a home's duct system flows through the attic, the radiant barriers will help to prevent heat from transferring into the air ducts. With radiant barriers installed, the cost of keeping your home air conditioned can be reduced because there will be less heat radiating from the roof to other areas.
Air leakage or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. The South Florida heat entering your home can cause increased energy bills. Proper air sealing your home can significantly correct this unwanted intrusion, with benefits such as: reduced heating and cooling costs, improved building durability, and healthier indoor air quality.
