Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Update and protect your crawlspace HVAC board box ductwork
I needed to "weatherproof" the crawlspace duct board from the summer moisture that attacks the exterior of the duct board over time. To accomplish this I disconnected the flex ducts from the unit, cleaned the entire surface area on the board boxes then sealed and taped any leaks in the existing 20 foot long unit. Next I tightly wrapped the board box with the product, reinstalled the flex ducts and taped the seams. The unit now has a brand new moisture proof surface area that is completely sealed and looks awesome. This also added an additional R3 insulation factor to the unit. Nice product considering the cost vs end result.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Easy and works great!
The reflective insulation was excellent to work with, had no fiberglass, went on easy and worked fine. We used the insulation in knee wall areas. We took readings on the wall before and after with an electronic infrared thermometer to prove it made a difference. It made a definite difference in that room which is 45 feet long by 14 feet wide. We were pleased with the results.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JofTrades Tarp-Reflective Insulation
I used contact cement, original to glue the insulation to the tarp leaving 4 inches of tarp on each edge and overlapped each 4 foot insulation to each other. I then folded and cement edges of tarp and put new gourmets in. I made this tarp to put on my RV that has a rubber roof and it is solid and tied down good. I then put 3 crossover ropes on top to take out any wind whip. I wish the tarp was a little heavier but with it folded over and cemented we will see after a couple years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aretiredcat We love this product!
We use this stuff everywhere we can when building/remodeling our old mobile home. It's easy to work with and helps add insulation. This time we put a new roof on our old RV and placed this product underneath the new roof skin. Every little bit helps with these older "beer cans in the Florida sun"! About 10 years ago we rebuild an old VW Bug and used this product to line the floor and roof before new floor carpet and headliner. Even when parked for hours our bug stayed the coolest car in the parking lot. Next project is using this material to make a sun shield/privacy shield for our VW camping van. Why don't we own stock in this company?

I wish everyone could know the hidden value of this product. I learned about the solar ovens being used by the women of Somalia refugee camps, made with cardboard and reflective tin foil glued to the surface and shaped to reflect the sun onto a dark pot. This has not only freed up hours a day hunting for fire wood but has also kept them from great harm. With a 3'X4' piece of Reflectix I have duplicated their pattern and have cooked several meals with no fuel and little effort. It folds up and can be carried camping or kept for
emergencies. At a little over $5.00 each, every one should have one of these in an emergency preparedness kit!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bikabar Great product to insulated duct work
The recent cold snap finally motivated me to insulate my furnace/ air conditioning ducting. Because of the amount of ducting in the basement, it has always been one of the warmest rooms in the house in the winter and the coldest in the summer when the AC is on. The difference in the temperature there now after insulating is phenomenal. There's a lot more heat getting to the first and second floors of the house rather than being lost in the basement. I can't wait till summer to see how much cooler the upstairs is. Word of caution, please follow the instructions on how to apply this product

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Good product for insulating in tight spaces.
Doing a knee wall insulation upgrade using this product to seal the fiberglass batt insulation on the cold side of the knee wall. It seems to have stopped or slowed air movement between the cold and warm side. It remains to be seen how it will perform in the summer heat. It is easy to use this product in tight, confined spaces and seems to be doing the job of reflecting heat back into the living space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VT00 Great insulation for an old stone basement
For underneath the ground floor: beats fiberglass by a long shot in an old humid basement with dirt floor and stone foundation. Fiberglass, even the kind that prevents mold, will get soaked within a few months. This products uses the concept of air space for insulation and can keep the air space between floor and basement dry (i.e. hence warm). It can get wet on the basement side, but if properly installed it will not allow the moisture through> Also, being not absorbent, it will dry right out. Buy the silver tape that is recommended.
