RADIANT BARRIER INSTALLATION METHODS

There are two methods of installing Radiant Barrier, Lay-over and Staple-up. The Heat Busters know that in Texas the greatest efficiency is gained by employing the Staple-up method. Below is a brief discussion of each.

Lay Over

The Lay-over installation is good for people that do not use their attic for any storage. The Radiant Barrier is simply laid on top of the existing insulation and tacked down in specific areas to prevent any type of movement. Think of it like a blanket for your attic. This application works very well in older homes that do not have the HVAC unit or duct work in the attic.

 

Dust accumulation does have a negative impact on radiant barrier effectiveness over time as noted here in the Radiant Barrier Fact Sheet from Oak Ridge National Laboratories.

Staple-up

The Staple-up installation is perfect for those who use their attic for storage and/or have the HVAC unit and duct work in the attic. Stapled up against the roof rafters, tightly and visually appealing leaving the attic space completely available and protected. The Radiant Barrier installed by The Heat Busters is a tough material that is not easily punctured or torn, so no worries when you are storing those Christmas decorations! Dust accumulation is not a concern with the Staple-up application.

WHO WE'VE HELPED

BUCKWAYS

"Heat Busters installed the radiant barrier in my attic over two years ago. The work was done quickly and professionally. They are great to work with, no problems. My electric bill dropped $100.00 the first month. I would recommend them to anyone. The radiant barrier has already paid for itself, and continues to save me money each month."

ANDERSONS

"I used the Heat Busters in early summer 2014 to add insulation to my attic. The transaction and business dealings were smooth from start to finish. Price was among the best. Todd answered all my questions.  It's a family business, so the guy you speak with really cares about the service. Nice people. I highly recommend this service."

JOHNSONS

"We have a new home and I asked Todd to come out and look at what if anything can be done to improve the insulation.

He's a great guy very honest and will not try to scam you he's very professional and looks at everything to do the best for you."
