“I ordered 3,500 sq ft of 26" wide and have an A frame attic with 12 foot from floor to peak. Install took 100 hours over several months. I used the hybrid method (on rafters and over insulation). Ed was great on the tips. He said to drill a 1/8 inch hole in the rolls for over the insulation to eliminate any chance of condensation. It's hard to tell the dollar savings b/c the wife kept the house temp a few degrees cooler the summer after the install and I had to get a new upstairs a/c. However, I think it has helped keep the attic cooler. The attic has 500 sq ft of plywood floor used for storage and it's definitely helped control the blowing insulation and dust. Another tip from Ed...I folded the edges 2 inches to fit the 26" pieces between the 24" rafters when installing over the insulation. Then I used binder clips to attach the pieces and keep it looking tidy.”
“Question/Comment: Thank you for a wonderful product!!! I needed to find some way of keeping my attic cooler in our hot Georgia summers. My HVAC and duct work is in the attic and the AC was working way too hard trying to keep our well insulated house cool. I took the temperature of highest point in our attic and got 146 degrees (91 outside). Duct work and HVAC was in the 120- 125 degree range. It took several early mornings working to install the 3000 square feet of your 48" perforated radiant barrier and finished today. I just took the temperature in the attic with completed installation and it's dropped 20 to 26 degrees (91 again outside). I'm so happy, installation was difficult using ladders and working around ducts but your product is amazing. It's tough and will last forever!! Thank you so much, can't say enough good things about your company and I'm looking forward to lower power bills now!!!!”

“Live in south Florida and unfortunately didn't start project until beginning of June. I did manage to complete approximately 90 pct of the attic working a few hours a day until July. The CFO(wife) is able to monitor the projected monthly electric bill and has been impressed. Literally watched monthly estimated bill go down! Cannot for certain determine what our cost savings will be having not completed the install however, we estimate 20 to 25 pct monthly.
Regarding installation, Being an enthusiastic DYI'er and never met a project I wouldn't try, of all the home improvement projects I've undertaken in the last 30 years this was by far the most miserable, time consuming, and frustrating project ever. My recommendation is, do NOT install this product by yourself. One other person would help tremendously but, two or more would be the way to go.
Specs: approx 3000 sq ft, 4 in 12 pitch, a/c air handlers and ducting in attic, fireplace, R-30 pink insulation, and did I mention crawling through all those #@$! trusses.
Love the product, highly recommend it, install in the winter(south) and brag about the savings!! ”
“I installed attic foil in June 2017 in my home in Pennsylvania. In July, The temps of 90' and high humidity made me realize the product worked. I could sit in my recliner in my one story home with a brown roof, no shade and felt no radiate heat. What a relief. I wish I would have installed attic foil twenty three years ago, when I bought my home. Definitely great product for the low cost. And surprise, easy installation!”
