UPDATE: As of May 23, 2012, all radiant barriers that had previously been designated as an ENERGY STAR qualified product were removed from the ENERGY STAR Seal and Insulate program. However, our RadiantGUARD® products are designed to meet the Prescriptive Path requirement for homes in IECC Climate Zones1-3 that have more than 10 linear feet of ductwork located in an unconditioned attic. See Exhibit 1 of the ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes, Version 3 (Rev 05) National Program Requirements at www.energystar.gov/newhomesguidelines.”
RadiantGUARD® is proud to offer products that have earned the government’s ENERGY STAR label. RadiantGUARD® radiant barriers, which have been proven to save energy and lower utility bills, have earned the ENERGY STAR label.
As a Seal and Insulate with ENERGY STAR partner, select RadiantGUARD® radiant barrier and reflective insulation products have earned the ENERGY STAR label.
ENERGY STAR is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping consumers save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices and is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
To earn the ENERGY STAR label, RadiantGUARD® basic product specifications and marketing materials were reviewed by ENERGY STAR. This review checked many of the claims made by RadiantGUARD® regarding product specifications, energy savings, and installation instructions.
At the completion of this review by ENERGY STAR, RadiantGUARD® was pleased to learn that they met the requirements and were designated as an ENERGY STAR Partner. Along with this partnership designation, select RadiantGUARD® radiant barrier and reflective insulation products earned the ENERGY STAR label used to make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort.
“With more and more companies entering the radiant barrier and reflective insulation industries, we’ve seen a rise in misinformation presented to consumers about product specifications and energy savings claims” says Shawn Franklin, V.P. of Marketing at RadiantGUARD®. “Our goal from inception has been to provide accurate and factually-supported information about radiant barrier products and how they can save energy and lower utility bills. We wanted a recognizable partnership that would help communicate our commitment to providing accurate information about radiant barriers and their benefits and most importantly, accurate product specifications – an ENERGY STAR partnership was the answer.”
As an ENERGY STAR partner, customers can be assured that RadiantGUARD® is committed to maintaining the highest level of integrity in the radiant barrier and reflective insulation industries and that RadiantGUARD® radiant barrier and reflective insulation products have been proven to save energy and lower utility bills.
