ATTIC FAN & RADIANT BARRIER.
1. The Power-Save Solar Attic Fan
Saving energy in your home must start at
the top. As warm air rises, it collects in the attic making your
entire house hotter and your air conditioning less efficient.
This costs you valuable dollars and unnecessary wear and tear
on your cooling equipment.
The Power-Save Solar Attic fan removes
hot air from the attic keeping your home cooler while maximizing
your air conditioner's efficiency. The
solar powered fan draws
no electricity from the utility and will cost you nothing
Removes Hot Attic Air; Solar Powered;
Up to 850 CFM Air Flow; Optional Thermostat; Same Day installation; 10/5/25 Year Warranty; Saves Energy.

2. Power-Save Radiant
barriers are installed in homes—most commonly
in attics—to reduce summer heat
gain and winter heat loss, which helps lower heating and cooling
costs. The barriers consist
of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather
than absorbing it.
How Radiant Barriers Work:
Heat travels from a warm area to a cool area by a combination
of conduction, convection, and radiation. Heat flows by conduction
from a hotter material to a colder material when the two materials
touch. Heat transfer by convection occurs when a liquid or gas
is heated, becomes less dense, and rises. Radiant heat travels
in a straight line away from the hot surface and heats anything
solid as the wave of energy hits it.
When the sun heats a roof, it's primarily the
sun's radiant energy that makes the roof hot. A large portion
of this heat travels by conduction through the roofing materials
to the attic side of the roof. The hot roof material then radiates
its gained heat energy into the cooler attic (some of the roof's
heat will radiate in other directions too). A radiant barrier
reduces the radiant heat transfer from the roof to the attic
(perforated) aluminum foil insulation; Fire retardant; Reflects
95% of radiation heat Perforated aluminum foil radiant barrier
to eliminating sweating; Use for attics, roof and walls ; Easily
stapled into place in attic on ceiling joists or rafters, sealed
with aluminum tape; Adhesion Good on clean and dry surface;
No Discoloration Resistance Excellent resistance to water,
water vapor, oxidation and weathering.

The hot box above is a representation of an attic with Power-Save Radiant Barrier
installed. The hot box shows the temperature difference between
a homes attic with and without radiant barrier, using infra-red
Left Side: The left side shows a laid down radiant barrier with
unfaced R-19 fiberglass insulation. The thermometer reads 93.2
Right Side: The right side shows unfaced R-19 fiberglass insulation
only. Its thermometer reads 152.5 degrees F.
There is a difference of 59.3 degrees F between
the two sides. This difference is due to the Power-Save Radiant
Barrier's ability to reflect radiant heat away from the insulation!
The numbers above were arrived at after a six hour period with
an ambient air temperature average of 84 degrees.
NOTE: Both sides reached their steady state after only one half

3. Power-Save Duct Seal System
sealing is a combination of Power-Save Radiant Barrier and Power-Save
Leaky ducts can reduce
heating and cooling system efficiency by as much as 20 percent. Sealing and insulating
ducts increases efficiency, lowers your energy bills, and can
often pay for itself in energy savings.
Plus, if you’re planning to install new heating and cooling equipment, a well-designed and sealed duct system
may allow you to downsize to a smaller, less costly heating and
cooling system that will provide better dehumidification.
1) tape all seams in duct work
2) wrap all duct work with radiant barrier
3) use same tape to attach radiant barrier to duct work and seal
