Foil Radiant Barrier vs Spray on Barrier

We are proud  to say we don’t Spray. Spray on radiant barrier products Don’t Work. So why would anybody use them. Why! From what we see high pressure sales and gimmicks to make a fast buck.  Spray on radiant barrier is not a good substitute for foil. It only blocks 60 to 78% of radiant heat at best,  if installed 100% correctly, which never happens. It is not considered a radiant barrier by energy Star or the Government. It comes  off to the touch and over time.  It causes aluminum dust that often infiltrates to the living area of the home. It also cost just as much and often more than the foil, which blocks 98% of radiant heat. I know, I have used both in my home. Foil works, spray on does not!

You might also hear of radiant barrier paint. This is essentially the same as the spray on radiant barrier. It does not reflect 90% of the heat like foil radiant barrier and is not the same as a foil radiant barrier. The best radiant barrier spray out is only available to commercial contractors and is not safe for the environment.

Foil Radiant Barrier is the way to go when you are considering cutting your energy costs and making your home more energy efficient.
