“I used attic foil in my attic and also in the garage. I’m pleased with the results. I feel my home and garage are cooler this year. I did my attic in the spring and I finished the garage a couple of weeks ago. I insulated my attic with R-30 then put the attic foil up on top of the insulation. I think the combination of both has made a big difference. In my garage I put in R-19 with a blanket of attic foil on top of it also. My garage rafters had nothing, open and insulated. As you can imagine really hot in the summer and cold in the winter. I’ve noticed a big difference there too. So far the house and the garage have been cooler and that makes me happy. This coming winter will be a good test. I’ve been tracking my heating bills to see if I’ll be saving some money with the improvements in the long run. Sometimes our Colorado winters can be pretty brutal. So like I mentioned I’m pleased so far. Oh yeah, doing all this is kinda of a hot and dirty job. I did all the work by myself so I could save more money. I learned a lot. When and if I had questions, I went to Attic Foil’s web site and watched some of there video’s. Easy as that! I own my home so I think it will be a good investment for all the seasons and years to come. Thank you Attic Foil!” -B.H. in CO

“Before Attic Foil installation the small confined attic spaces on either side of my finished bonus room above the garage would get to at least 114 deg minimum. The roof gets direct sun all day and in addition to being a second floor room it would get unbearable to be in there with interior temps upward of 95 deg (without AC). Even the 3 main air vents and a 8G btu window unit (sized perfectly for the room) would barely make a dent and run constantly just to get the temp down to 85-87.

After researching the Attic Foil decided it was a no-brainer to at least try it so started by attaching it against the rafters in those two attic spaces to see if it would really work. Well, the 12 deg difference it made convinced me I was on the right track and tore into the living space removing drywall etc..unfortunately no other way to do it dealing with a finished room like that and a major project but worth the effort. Now on 95+ deg days, the average interior temp of that room is 85 without AC and it used to be that with all AC units going full blast.
Obviously, I was working with a slanted ceiling and had to install the barrier between the rafters.The only problem I had installing was using the construction adhesive on the spacers between the rafters. The roof was hot and the spacers would slide all over the place or wouldn’t stay up. Use a couple short roofing nails to secure the spacers while the glue sets up. Actually in retrospect don’t really need to glue if ya use the short roofing nails. The spacers just maintain the required air gap so once the insulation is installed there’s no more upward pressure to compromise that and doesn’t really matter if they drop or not.” -D.R.A. in NC

“I purchased atticfoil after thinking about it for over 5 years(house is only 7 years old). I finally thought i have nothing to lose. I purchased and went to work in the attic. I had blown in insulation and didn’t care for it and I wanted flooring to be able to walk around the attic. So i shoveled up the blown in insulation and packed it where i could’t use the rolled insulation. Packed in between the floor joist and then i re-insulated with rolled insulation. When i went to install the atticfoil on the roof joist i realized with all the different angles on the roof line that i wasn’t able to install easily. so i went back on the website and saw i could install over top of the rolled insulation i installed. i was done with my attic in 4 hours(1500 sq ft). I’m a 50 year old women that’s pretty handy. Anyway my heat bills were almost cut in half. I just started the spring/summer season. With my ac on now with 80 plus degree temps. my thermastat is up 5 degrees higher then i have every had it to keep the house comfortable. So for energy efficient means and a do it yourself install. I’m happy as a pig in a mud pit. I highly recommend to everyone to install this product. I’m upset i didn’t do it when i first thought about it 5 years ago. I’m about to purchase another home and will be installing atticfoil as the first home improvement/weekend project i do. I highly recommend to anyone that wants to do a home improvement project that counts for energy savings and overall temperature control through out your home. I purposely left one section open with just insulation on the front side of my home. When i came down the stairs each cold morning in January there was a 10 degrees temperature difference(a lot colder). Of course i just installed that last long piece so that i have a constant temperature through out the house. love the product and the ease of install. follow atticfoils instructions on website and it is a piece a cake. I had to prove it to myself that it made a big difference and I did by leaving just that one piece undone. So what you read on the website is true and correct and again recommend this product to anyone.” -Sassy in GA

“Product is very durable, does not tear even when handled roughly. The first day of install, I only got half way done. Outside temp in south Texas was 89 at 5pm. temp reading on an unfinished higher part of attic was 115. temp reading on finished lower part of attic (ON the foil) was 94. That was only half installed. But I think a very good sign. I posted one question to support, and was promptly replied to early the next day. Thanks.” -David S. in TX

“I bought attic foil to do the ceiling above the kitchen area of our “bunkhouse”, a small 20 x 30 building we live in when we come home each summer as our main house is rented out. It was very easy to install and was much more durable than I had expected. I put a lot of boxes and stuff in this space and there have been no tears. And yes, the kitchen area has remained much cooler even when the attic space was very hot. When we reroof the bedroom/study area part of the bunkhouse I will put attic foil between the metal roof and the roof board and bat. 1/2″ plywood will go over that. When the main house gets reroofed we will use attic foil between the new plywood sheathing and the existing board and batting also. And at our county fair today I think I sold a guy selling another similar product for $2.25/sq ft; a three ply – metal both sides, 1/8″ foam in between, on taking a look at attic foil at 16 cents/sq ft instead of his expensive product. The only better product out there might be green-yellow; a five ply product, but at $3.25/sq ft it is way out of most people’s budget for very very little gain over attic foil. Atticfoil is a tough deal to beat folks; it works, it’s tough stuff, keeps its shape and is easy to put down with a cheap staple gun.” -B. Ball in WA

“I live in northwest NJ and my attic temps were over 120 during the hot summer days. I have an indoor/outdoor temp in my attic so I can see the temps easy. I finally got the time in mid-June to get the Attic Foil installed. I had my son help and it was pretty easy to install. I’m very happy to report that my attic temps are now on average 10 degrees warmer than the outside air temps. My shingles are black, so I am very happy with this product. The foil is very tough, I tried to tear a piece and was unsuccessful.” -Mike W. in NJ

“I purchased this product because my room upstairs (cottage style home) is always 6-8 degrees warmer than my main floor in the summer. I will have to wait till next summer to see how well it does. I can attest that this product is easy to handle. I installed it myself. Yes, it would be easier with 2 people. But I cut the length I needed and rolled it up and crawled behind the knee-high wall into the attic space. Then stapled up one edge to the rafter and then unrolled the rest while crawling. Pulled it tight and stapled up the far end and then worked my way back, stapling as I went. Not hard at all. Durable product.” -Rob in IN

“This was amazing. The product, the information offered on the site, the convenience. We loved this product so much we ordered two 1000 sq ft rolls at separate times then a smaller roll at a later time. We sent almost a complete roll across the country to our son who also thought it was an amazing product.

It has more than paid for itself and we’ve only been through one winter. The attic is still humid of course, being July in the Midwest, however we installed a powerful exhaust fan which is super nice and was a smart investment of about 100.00 and a little time. My husband and I were thrilled at discovering your website. We checked out a product @ Home Depot & decided to dig a bit and found your site. We just wish we would have found it a couple years ago when our house was being sided. We would have wrapped the entire house!!” -Dave and Marie Williams in IL

      Does radiant barrier foil really work? ›

      Some studies show that radiant barriers can reduce cooling costs 5% to 10% when used in a warm, sunny climate. The reduced heat gain may even allow for a smaller air conditioning system. In cool climates, however, it's usually more cost-effective to install more thermal insulation than to add a radiant barrier.

      Is a radiant barrier worth the money? ›

      You Save Money on Cooling Costs

      To be fair, radiant barriers alone only reduce between five to ten percent of your monthly cooling costs. However, when combined with insulation, barriers can cut your cooling bill in half. Naturally, the results will vary depending on the size of your home and if it is well-insulated.

      What are the cons of radiant barrier? ›

      Radiant Barrier Cons
      • Not as effective in colder climates.

      What are the cons of radiant barrier in attic? ›

      Potential for moisture condensation

      During cold weather, a radiant barrier on top of the insulation could cause water vapor to condense on the barrier's underside. Condensation of large amounts of water could lead to the following problems: the existing insulation could become wet and lose some of its insulating value.

      What are the disadvantages of reflective foil insulation? ›

      Disadvantages of Reflective Insulation • It is generally more expensive due to being a metal-based product. Whilst effective in warmer climates, it will be required to be combined with other forms of insulation in colder climates. This is in order to prevent heat loss in cold weather from convection.
