Answer: 
This product can be used and you don't need to tack it down. But you need to make sure the reflective side is facing up. With the reflective side facing up it will reflect radiant heat.

Dear Beth: Yes, but with a major caveat. All 'reflective insulation' products require you to create / build a sealed air gap on one side that is at least 3/4" deep. This air gap provides almost all of the claimed R value. The thin reflective plastic has almost no R value.

So if your original ceiling has beams, or if you install spacers on the ceiling, you may be able to create this air gap -- which

Dear Beth: Yes, but with a major caveat. All 'reflective insulation' products require you to create / build a sealed air gap on one side that is at least 3/4" deep. This air gap provides almost all of the claimed R value. The thin reflective plastic has almost no R value.

So if your original ceiling has beams, or if you install spacers on the ceiling, you may be able to create this air gap -- which must be sealed to prevent air leaks, or the hot air will simply leak back into the room. DAP 230 is effective as a sealant.
If you heat this room in winter, however, reflective insulation is not effective because cold cannot be 'reflected' and the warm air in your building is not radiant.

The best option is standard insulation, which could be installed on the original ceiling. Roxul ComfortBatt, for example, provides R4 per inch. See: Roxul Model # RXCB351525, Home Depot Internet # 202090820 Store SKU # 974419.

Avoid foam board, which is very flammable -- unless you are also willing to cover it with a layer of drywall, which is required in occupied space.

I hope this is helpful,

Mark

Answer: 
Dear Florida: Yes, but it will not provide much insulation value. All reflective products require you to build / create a sealed air pocket on one side. This air gap provides almost all of the claimed R value; the plastic bubbles have almost no R value.
Fortunately, Home Depot offers another garage door insulation product that provides solid R8 performance. See: Owens Corning Model # GD01 Home Depot Read More

Answer: 
To eliminate condensation on the door you would need to maintain a minimum of 3/4 inch air space between the door and the Reflectix instead of taping directly to the surface of the door.

Answer: 
Dear Dude: Almost zero. The R values claimed by reflective bubble wrap and sheet products depend on a sealed air pocket that you must create / build on one side. This sealed air gap provides almost all of the R value; the reflective plastic delivers almost no R value. So.. silver or white makes little difference.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
When applying the white one side/reflective one side product there are specific instructions for which side is exposed to the inside of the building and which side should be facing to the outside. Please consult our webiste for specific applications with the white/reflective products. R-values for all applications are stated on the instructions. www.reflectixinc.com

Dear Larawaybob: First, Reflectix has almost no insulation value by itself. The R values claimed on the package depend on a sealed 'air gap' that you must create / build when you install it. Look for the "FTC fact sheet" on the ReflectixInc website for details. It would obviously be difficult to create a sealed air gap next to your greenhouse walls and roof.

Dear Larawaybob: First, Reflectix has almost no insulation value by itself. The R values claimed on the package depend on a sealed 'air gap' that you must create / build when you install it. Look for the "FTC fact sheet" on the ReflectixInc website for details. It would obviously be difficult to create a sealed air gap next to your greenhouse walls and roof.
Second, Reflectix is much less effective (even with the air gap) in winter vs summer, because there is little 'radiant heat' for the shiny surface to reflect. With a cathedral ceiling, for example, Reflectix claims R7 in summer but only R1 in winter in the northern US. So this would not be an effective option for a greenhouse in winter.
Home Depot sells other insulation products that would be effective in a greenhouse, e.g. foam board. The best option would be foil-faced foam board which provides R 6.5 per inch. Look for: Super TUFF-R Model # 268426 Internet # 100322374 Store SKU # 804395 Be sure to seal all of the joints and edges to block air leaks; HVAC foil tape works well. Note: foam is flammable and should not be installed near anything that may get hot, e.g. a furnace or exhaust duct. The board is light and you could fasten it to the greenhouse framing with pieces of double sided velcro. Look for: VELCRO brand Model # 90197 Internet # 202261919 Store SKU # 847003
I hope this is helpful,

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Insulation Used on a metal roof. It keeps the heat in/out very well. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product! I am amazed at how well this stuff insulates!! I used it in a garage and it has made a HUGE difference in temp. and allows the A/C to keep up even when it's 90* outside. Before insulation, it would get hot enough in the space to literally melt plastic! But now even with NO A/C running it hasn't gotten above 80*. It was very easy to install with a staple gun and a pair of scissors and the 2' width fit perfectly between the roof rafters. Easy to cut around the light fixtures and garage door rails. And it looks great! Really brightens up the space. Will be adding white duct tape to cover the seams. I already did that on 2 of the seams and it works really well, just haven't had a chance to get back up there and finish it. I plan to get more when the S.E. Indiana Barn Hunt Club moves to their new building to insulate that place. September 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I was looking for. I used this insulation to wrap the under pinning of my motor home for cold weather. Taped the top and used landscape fabric pins on the bottom, thus no need for a backing frame. Worked like a charm. December 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fast delivery - good product I ordered this product online with free shipping and it was delivered a couple days early from the estimated delivery date. Used it in my 40x80 pole barn on the wall that sits in direct sunlight. Works good, easy to cut & install. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product is working satisfactory under the extreme conditions. After figuring dimensions of the garage door, it was easy to layout and cut the material to size for the install which took some thought on what type of 2 sided tape to use since being in the phoenix area the sun in the west beats directly on the door and it gets HOT. Most tapes I reviewed didn't list temperature ratings. So I went with a 1.5" wide carpet tape that was rated to 200 degrees. And I used about 9 50yd rolls which was probably overkill but I don't want it falling off in a week. I did a 17' x 7' door and had some material left. What surprised me when I looked at the instructions for this material was that it didn't show it being used for my app. It was showed as a utility type wall and ceiling app. But it works. And it dropped the temp. in the garage down about 5 to 10 degrees which is a lot in Arizona. When gauging the product's efficiency you have to take into consideration that putting a hot car in the garage is going to release heat as it cools so maybe a small vent fan is another project to deal with hot climates. June 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lightweight, easy to install, not "messy". I've used this product before. Fine insulation for DIY folks. Seems to work quite well, though I have no scientific proof. December 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for pole barns Insulating a pole barn and this gives me the extra R value rather than using house wrap December 10, 2013
