can this be used to insulate the basement ceiling to keep my living room warmer??

Asked by: peanut
Dear Peanut: No. Reflectix and similar reflective / radiant barrier products are not effective in the winter because cold cannot be 'reflected' and the warmer air inside your home is not radiant. Here are three options, depending on whether you have cold winters in your area -- and whether you care about the appearance of your basement ceiling: (1) Cold winters: Start by filling the floor joist bays with Roxul ComfortBatt -- which provides R-4 per inch of thickness. See: Roxul Model # RXCB551525, Home Depot Internet #205972546. Roxul is much denser and more effective than fiberglass. Home Depot carries a variety of widths and thicknesses, to match your joist spacing and depth. As you install it, hold the batts in place with Simpson insulation wire. See: Simpson Model # IS16-R100, Home Depot Internet #100375163 Store SKU #594333. Then install 1 1/2" thick Foamular XPS foam board on the bottom of your floor joists. See: Foamular Model # 88WD, Home Depot Internet #202085958 Store SKU #104834. This will provide R-7.5, plus break the 'thermal bridges' created by all of the (previously) exposed wood joists, plus help you air seal the basement ceiling. Carefully seal all of the joints and edges of the foam board to block air leaks; DAP 230 works well for small gaps. The 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff spray foam is good for larger gaps. Foam board MUST be covered by an approved 'thermal barrier' in a basement, any living area, garage or attic storage area - so install 1/2" drywall over the foam board. (2) Moderate winters - if you do not care about the appearance of the basement ceiling: Start by stapling Tyvek house wrap to the bottom of your floor joists. Carefully seal all of the joints and edges, to block air leaks. Use special Tyvek tape for the joints and DAP 230 or the 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff for the edges. See: Tyvek Model # D14050353, Home Depot Internet #100422452 Store SKU #641382 and Tyvek Model # D13841470 Internet #100422453 Store SKU #176886. Use a power stapler, e.g. the DeWalt Model # DWHT75021, Home Depot Internet #300240783 Store SKU #1002219287. Then install Roxul ComfortBoard on the bottom of your joists. This will provide R-6, plus break the 'thermal bridges' created by all of the (previously) exposed wood joists. See: Model # RXCB11224 Internet #206789748 Store SKU #1001748089 (3) Moderate winters with a nice basement ceiling: Start by installing 1 1/2" thick Foamular XPS foam board on the bottom of your floor joists. See: Foamular Model # 88WD, Home Depot Internet #202085958 Store SKU #104834. This will provide R-7.5, plus break the 'thermal bridges' created by all of the (previously) exposed wood joists, plus help you air seal the basement ceiling. Carefully seal all of the joints and edges of the foam board to block air leaks; DAP 230 works well for small gaps. The 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff spray foam is good for larger gaps. Install 1/2" drywall over the foam board. This will allow you to tape, finish and paint the basement ceiling, for a nice appearance -- and provide the required thermal barrier. That's a lot of detail, but I hope one of the options will match your requirements. Mark

What is the R value?

What is the R value?
Asked by: abby
Dear Abby: Good question! If you read the Reflectix installation directions carefully, you will find that the R-value advertising claims are based on a sealed air gap that you must build or create. Almost all of the claimed R values are based on this air gap, because the shiny bubble wrap that Reflectix is made from has almost no R-value by itself. You will also find that Reflectix and similar reflective / radiant barrier products are not effective in winter because cold cannot be 'reflected' and the warmer air inside your home is not radiant. Reflectix claims R-7 for a cathedral ceiling in summer, for example -- but only R-1 in winter. In contrast, standard insulation products from Home Depot have a tested R-value per inch of thickness, winter and summer, no matter where they are installed -- e.g. foam board, rock wool, fiberglass and cellulose. Foam board is the most effective with R-5 to R-6 per inch, but foam is also flammable (like Reflectix) and must be covered by 1/2" drywall in any home, garage, basement or attic storage area. Roxul rock wool is typically best for locations near sources of heat or where flammability is a concern. Roxul provides R-4 per inch and is not flammable. There is one area where a reflective / radiant barrier is a good idea: on the floor joists or rafters of a home where summer heat is a problem. This will reflect ~24% of the radiant heat flow into the rooms below, in addition to the standard insulation you should install in your attic. Dust that accumulates over time reduces this effectiveness, so you will need to dust it off every few years. I hope this is helpful, Mark
