EcoFoil Perforated Radiant Barrier is the most appropriate product for attic insulation applications, and is suitable for any climate. This reflective attic insulation prevents excess heat gain in the warm summer months, and prevents heat loss in the cooler, winter months.

More About EcoFoil Attic Insulation
Ensuring that your attic is properly insulated is an important step in increasing the efficiency of your HVAC system, and keeping your home comfortable in both hot and cold climates. EcoFoil Perforated Radiant Barrier does just that, while also preventing moisture build-up that could cause mold, mildew and rotting.
In hot climates, attic temperatures can reach as high as 140° F. The radiant heat in the attic tries to force its way into your living space, making your air conditioner work harder, which in turn, increases utility expenses. Conversely, in cold climates, 50-75% of heat can be lost through the attic space, making your heater work overtime to keep your living area warm. EcoFoil’s reflective attic insulation combats these inefficiencies by reflecting 96% of radiant heat, either away from your home, or back into your home, depending on the source of the heat.
