vsRadiant Barrier Chips over Attic
insulation and energy conservation are important. Home Depot has many
answers. Home Depot carries venting and radiant barrier
products,. radiant barrier
is a great way to lower energy costs. Fiberglass, cellulose, R

Radiant Barrier System Chips©
(RBS Chips), is a reflective metalized film product that changes the
direction of heat through your ceiling. Keeps heat out during the
summer and in during the winter. Significant savings (minimum 20%
reduction on your energy bill, most savings well over 30%.
Cost of RBS Chips is $250 per 20lb box including shipping which covers
between 350 and 400 square feet of attic area. (1/2 boxes
available, please specify when ordering). This price also
includes the use of our installation blower, hose, attic lighting
system, cords and mask.
Use this product in low pitched or hard to access attics/areas as the
chips can be blown from the machine up to 8 feet away. For
conventionally framed attics that are easily accessible, we suggest
using our latest product, Thermal
Control Membrane, a sheet type product that is
rolled out over your existing

to resist the flow of
heat. Why resist the costly flow of heat when you can easily
change the direction of heat?

10" square box weighs 20lbs and contains enough RBS Chips to cover approx
350sq feet feet of attic area depending on how level the
insulation is in your attic now. The more level the upper surface
of attic insulation, the better the RBS Chips will perform and the
better coverage you will achieve.
you currently have blown fiber glass or batt fiberglass in your attic
now it is recommended that a 2" cap of blown cellulose insulation be
installed prior to the RBS Chips. The cellulose allows for more
level surface and better performance from RBS Chips.
"What about dust? I read dust
will degrade the performance radiant barrier in my attic"
Very true statement, dust has a very high absorptivity and high
emissivity. This means infrared heat can actually be collected
instead of reflected once the top layer gets dusty. Since most
radiant barriers come in roll form there is no protection against dust.
RBS Chips are blown in so there are eight to ten layers of metalized
surfaces facing each other, each separated by an airspace. Dust
will collect on the top surface but these surfaces are sacrificial to
the layers below. This is the basis of the patent on RBS Chips. .
. they are dust proof. For more information on the effects of
dust, click here.
"Isn't installing radiant barrier
in an attic difficult?"
It is if you are stapling it up to
the rafters (not recommended for optimum performance). However,
millions of reflective 1" square chips from our 4lb blower is simple
and allows for better coverage. It's also fun to
Another benefit of RBS Chips being on top of the insulation and not
stapled up to the rafters is the reduction of heat loss during the
winter. RBS Chips is the only radiant barrier that has
sufficient permeation to allow the migration of moisture in cold
climates without causing condensation problems. Some of our
strongest testimonials come from cold weather users.
"RBS Chips are costly"
The age old adage: "you get what you pay for" really applies
here. In most applications of radiant barrier in sheet form
there is 2000 square feet of radiant barrier in a 2000 square foot
There is 20,000 square feet of RBS Chip material in a 2000 square foot
due to the multiple layers being approximately 10 layers deep.
This redundancy is the basis for the
higher performance, dust protection and trapped air spaces.
Further, metalized film is slow and expensive to manufacture,
especially when both sides of the product are coated. This is the
same product NASA uses in space to protect astronauts and equipment.

Re: Radiant Barrier Chips installed in 2002
We had the radiant barrier chips installed last February. We have now
went through an entire year of seasons -- very hot and cool weather. Our 87
year old father is living with us, and the more even temperature of the
whole home has helped with his arthritis problems. We have noticed
also the comfort as well as the reduction in energy used both in the heat of
summer in Arizona as well as the cool dryness in the winter. As
electricity and gas heating prices have gone up, our utilities have
decreased significantly. I have recommended this product to my
coworkers and they have had this product installed in their homes also
and are very satisfied with the results.

The installation of your product R.B.C. has brought to our home the highest degree
of heating/cooling efficient we could possibly hope to attain.
Our home is primarily heated with a Vermont casting wood burning stove. Our living
space is on two levels, approximately 2300 sq. feet. With your product in the ceiling,
and air movement with a fan system we can comfortably heat the entire space. We
have also noticed a significant drop in our usage of wood following, your installation
of Radiant Barrier Chips.
RBS Chips have a dramatic "leveling" effect, it takes the home much longer to cool off
after it is heated for winter days, and longer to heat up during the summer days after
it is cooled off during the night time hours.
Your product "does it all" winter and summer.
Thank you for your creative genius.
We will never understand any building residential or commercial not using RBS Chips

Since the RBS Chip is designed to
reflect heat flow away from your insulation, it's
important to allow this heat to escape. We add dormer vents,
soffit vents or power ventilators on every installation.
