Due to the fact that radiant barrier’s effectiveness highly depends on proper installation, this is not a DIY project. It is best to use a certified installer for greater energy efficiency results. A professional will install your radiant barriers utilizing necessary safety precautions and according to local building and fire codes.
At Attic Control, our professional installers will ensure that proper air space is applied between the attachment points and that it is installed in a manner to minimize dust accumulation on the reflective faces.
It should also be noted that reflective foil will conduct electricity, so workers and homeowners must avoid making contact with bare electrical wiring. This is an extreme precaution. It should also be noted that if installed on top of the attic floor insulation, the foil will be susceptible to dust accumulation and may trap moisture in fiber insulation, so it is strongly recommended that you NOT apply radiant barriers directly on top of the attic floor insulation.
