Reduce heat loss in your vaulted ceiling
Vaulted ceilings, also known as cathedral ceilings, are a popular choice with homeowners for good reason—they're aesthetically beautiful and create an open, inviting look to your living space. But when they're not insulated properly, radiant heat can easily escape upwards, causing your heating and cooling systems to work harder to maintain comfortable temperatures. Save money on energy bills year-round by installing Double Bubble Reflective Insulation in your vaulted ceiling.
Reflect radiant heat away from your vaulted ceiling
In summer months, radiant heat enters your home through your roof. This causes your air conditioning to work harder, which drastically adds to heating and cooling costs. Reflective Insulation will prevent this by reflecting up to 96% of the radiant heat away from your living space.

That’s exactly what I needed for my 17 foot windshield in my RV. I did double face it to give it more rigidity, but it’s working perfectly.

Prevent condensation in your vaulted ceiling with cathedral ceiling insulation
As with any residential roof structure, there must be adequate ventilation provided from the eave of the building to the peak of the roof. This is important for proper natural airflow in order to eliminate the opportunity for condensation to form between the roofing materials. The easiest way to ensure a ventilation gap in a cathedral ceiling is to install insulation baffles between each ceiling joist. These are easily stapled to the roof sheeting and they create an airspace that will run continuously from the eave to the ridge.
