I have used this product before when in the state of California, it was sold as "Reflect-A Shield".
"Attic Foil" is a much stronger product and so far seems to be doing a good job maintaining the temperature in the house. My attic design has a lot of rafter jacks and supports in it so it was a bit more difficult to move around but certainly not impossible. I now live in south east Idaho where the temps. can reach -20 in winter. I will know better after the winter months how well this product works.
For the four mounths that I have had atticfoil installed my electric bill has gone down 3 of the 4 months(wife adjusting temp Up and Down all the time)ordered on july 12 2013 received less than a week later. Product easy to install. Precut to the length I needed before I started. I have a truss attic so I bought 4 rolls of the 26 inch rolls but only used 3 rolls. It took me about 10 total hours to install between early sat and sun morning in the first weekend of aug 2013. Then I installed more insulation the following month. Together both products have helped alot to lower my electric bill. Attic foil is very very easy to install do not over think like the videos on youtub say.
The rolls of foil we ordered were great! The material is durable, flexible, and easy to use. Three friends and I were able to install the foil in the attic in a day. The price is very competitive with other products on the market. And the shipping was fantastic. I ordered it late on a Friday and received it Tuesday morning. Your website was a huge help in determined the amount of foil we needed.
I bought a roll of 500 sf foil to cover the attic of my shed and it worked perfectly! Before that, I spent a lot of time nosing around at Home Depot but couldn't find the right stuff until I found AtticFoil.com. It did fit my job and saved my money. And I will certainly re-order it to fulfill for my future need.
We attended a "Dinner Presentation" on energy savings and purchased a thermal barrier product with installation for our home. We were very satisfied with the product and noted that we now needed to turn down our thermostat.
We considered attending another presentstion and ordering for our vacation home, but first, I did some web surfing and found AtticFoil.com. I checled the price and noted that it was available for about 1/4 what we had paid. This prompted me to send fo a sample. Comparison showed virtually identical material.
We ordered enough for bot floor and rafters after viewing the "How to" videos and were abel to do our vacation home at the optimum protection for less than half the price we had paid through the "Dinner Presentation".
We are already enjoying the added comfort and can't wait to do an energy savings comparison at the end of this winter.
Prompt service, easy installation, great savings, added comfort and an unbeatable prduct. We'd recommend "AtticFoil" to any one (and have).
By the Way... Our residence town of Philips burg, PA is noted for low winter temperatres and lots of snow. Our vacation home at Conneaut Lake, PA is no stranger to wintery weather with lake effects from both Conneaut Lake and Erie, PA about an hour north.
Thanks AtticFoil for a great product and super website!
It was easy to order, received it quickly and it worked!
Great product, easy to use. Last used it on a house seven years ago. Now, I rehab houses for rent, and am putting foil in the 80 year old attics....Worth it for me and for the future renters.
Go green and save energy1
I think its a good product but will have to wait till summer time comes around again to see the benefits but I think its going to work
I was planning to install a new metal roof over my shingle roof and was shopping for something to keep my attic cooler. Attic foil looked like a good and an economical way to do the job. I live in northwest Iowa and started the job in late september when the temperature was in the 40s and 50s. I have told my friends that after rolling out the foil standing on the roof was like standing in a frying pan. This stuff really reflects heat. I have no doubt that it will do the job that it is meant to do. Shipping was fast and the foil is as tuff as they claim.
Complete installing the 24in Truss Atticfoil over the main portion of the house. If you have a Truss roof, the 24in foil is the way to go. Was able to complete the install over a couple of weekend by myself. Will report back in the summer on hopefully positive savings.
I shopped around for a product to use as a heat barrier in my car, found AtticFoil and it works great, and alot cheaper than the product I was about to by at a top home builder supply store. I have told all my car friends about this and they also are checking it out.
Thanks Attic Foil
I'm very pleased with attic foil. it was a easy install and
the video on line was very informative.the product is easy to handle and is tear resistant.
I've installed attic foil in my attic in Germantown md.
I'm very confident that when next summer comes that my upstairs bedrooms won't be as hard to cool as they were
Major improvement in heating and cooling costs to my third floor apartment tenant once I added this product to the insulated attic that had a dark roof. Stabilized the temperature swings she was experiencing. Second time purchase, second time I have been very pleased with the result.
Thank you for the quick turn around.
Very please with the product and survice.
I found AtticFoil.com to be the best place to learn about radiant barrier concepts and to buy materials. I purchased a pneumatic staple gun to speed up the installation process. I also purchased a $20 IR temperature gun to evaluate the temperature changes (highly recommended). My wife now describes the attic as Project Apollo because the whole space is reflective and looks like a spaceship. Overall, the attic temp dropped about 10 to 15 degrees. The second floor AC has never been able to keep up with the hot TN summer weather. The radiant barrier made a huge improvement. Surprisingly, the second floor ceiling temperature did not change much. The big change was in the AC duct outlet air temperature. THAT is where the radiant barrier has the biggest impact. Prior to installing the foil, I measured the outlet air temperature of every second floor duct. I also measured the air temp right out of the AC unit. The air temp rose about 3 degrees coming out of ducts located about 15 feet from the AC unit. Other ducts located about 70 feet from the AC unit rose 7 to 10 degrees. After installing the foil, the furthest ducts cooled down 6 to 8 degrees. This made a significant difference in the upstairs room temps. Even though the ductwork is insulated, hot attic air transfers heat into the ducts which robs cooling capacity from the AC unit. I estimate that about 30% of the AC capacity was being lost from the heating of the duct work in the attic without the foil. After installing the radiant barrier, the ductwork heating dropped to only 5 to 10% of the AC unit capacity. The upstairs AC unit is undersized (2.5 tons) for the heat load. I was on the verge of having a larger AC unit installed upstairs. The foil radiant barrier is so effective, I do not need a new AC unit, saving me $5000 to $6000 dollars. My downstairs AC air ducts are also cooler. The monthly utility bills have dropped a good $50 to $75. I have recommended the website to many friends and several are proceeding with their own installations. With all the talk of this country reducing energy consumption (new light bulbs, more insulation) I am surprised that there is not more talk of installing radiant barrier material in houses. Especially when the country experiences an unusually hot summer and brownouts are frequent. For do it yourselfers, it is not a big investment and the payback is significant. Thanks Ed! The business you have built for consumers is a incredible accomplishment.
We live in central Virginia, U.S. The product worked better than advertised. On average we see a 30 degree difference in the attic. Now that the weather has turned cooler, the inside of the attic is warmer than outside. The product keeps heat out in the summer and heat in during the fall. I made two purchases, in each case, my order shipped the same day. I contacted support with a few follow-up questions. I received a completed and comprehensive response with reference to external source. The product and company are great. If needed, I would make another purchase. DIYers, save money - install it yourself!!!
AtticFoil.com is well organized and I was able to find all the info I needed from research data to installation instructions without any difficulties. Their prices and expediency were very competitive and the quality of materials very high. I will definitely come back if I ever need more radiant barrier!
I have never hung attic foil before, but having watched the instructional video it was a piece of cake! The attic foil has made a great difference on the heat load on my home. I am very pleased with this product and company!
Super fast delivery,great heavy duty product!
The foil is as strong as presented in the videos. Easy to work with and handle even in tight places. I compared Attic Foil to the products sold at the large home improvement stores and found it to be a much better product and best of all cost less!
