Description:

EcoFoil Perforated Radiant Barrier uses reflective technology to increase the energy efficiency and comfort level of your home. A radiant barrier is made of a thin layer of woven polyethylene which is sandwiched between two layers of a highly reflective metalized coating. With the polyethylene core the product cannot be ripped or torn. It blocks 96% of radiant heat transfer, helping keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

With the word perforated in the product title, it's important to note this type of radiant barrier has tiny pin holes punched every 1/4" throughout the roll, making it the only product to be used in an attic. This is because Perforated Radiant Barrier allows moisture, at a molecular level, to pass through it. In a warm climate or Summer application, the best installation would be on the bottom of the rafters or trusses with staples. In a cold climate or Winter application, the best installation would be over the insulation on the attic floor, laid right on top. For dual climates and maximum efficiency it is recommended to be installed in both places. Perforated Radiant Barrier works by reflecting heat away from the attic during long, hot summer days and reflecting heat back into your living space during those cold winter nights.

R-Value Of Radiant Barriers

Rather than rating by R-value, all radiant barrier products are measured by their reflective and emissive properties. EcoFoil radiant barrier insulation is 96% reflective and 4% emissive, meaning the product only allows 4% of radiant heat to pass through. 

There are some companies out there posting big R-Value numbers for their radiant barriers, but those numbers are rating the entirety of the system—including the product, air gap, and other building materials. In reality, most radiant barriers by themselves have little to no R-Value. If you need to satisfy a building code of a specified R-Value, we recommend the use of a traditional insulation in conjunction with our radiant barrier in order to meet code. For more information on R-values, see our How It Works page or contact a member of our friendly service team via chat, by calling (888) 349-3645, or using the form here.  

Important - It is NOT RECOMMENDED to use any type of tape on the EcoFoil Perforated Radiant Barrier in your attic. The tape will block the perforations and allow condensation to form in these places.

Easy to work with

This product is easy to work with and feels high quality. Cannot judge performance yet and don’t have another product to compare it to but I’m confident that the radiant barrier will pay for itself relatively quickly in terms of energy bills.

Installed on the rafters, can already tell a difference.
