Answer: 
This question is for Reflectix:
Why do you say it is good in car windows in a different thread?
And on the roll I bought, 24" x 25', it has a picture of it in the windshield of an RV?
But here you say not to use it on windows on the question about RV windows?
Please clarify the contradictory statements.
thanks,
Ron

The manufacturer may not recommend it, but having taken my RV to Alaska, twice in winter, I DEFINITELY recommend it. The front window exposure in my RV is 24 feet from driver to passenger side. Two layers of this stuff, cut in the middle so I can open up the windshield to the sun during the day, kept me comfortable and things from freezing.

The manufacturer may not recommend it, but having taken my RV to Alaska, twice in winter, I DEFINITELY recommend it. The front window exposure in my RV is 24 feet from driver to passenger side. Two layers of this stuff, cut in the middle so I can open up the windshield to the sun during the day, kept me comfortable and things from freezing. I've also placed it in windows that I don't care to look out of, like the bedroom. It works well with 1/4" thick blue board insulation, for a layering effect. I have squares of it stuffed into the vents, with the vent pillows holding it in place. Everything this stuff does for insulating in winter it also does for shielding from the sun in the summer.
I'm sure it probably 'cooks' the plastic on the vents when placed behind a plastic surface, but I've had them up there for 10 years and no problems so far.
One thing about using it in the RV...you can get the heat capturing down so well with this product that the RV furnace won't cycle as much. Great for propane use, but not great overnight as pipes are more likely to freeze at night. It takes some practice to get the thermostat just right to cycle so that the water lines on the floor don't freeze when camping in weather below freezing. Read Less

Dear Aaron:
As a previous reply noted, the max service temp of Reflectix is 180 degrees -- so this definitely not a good solution for your smokehouse.
Home Depot does sell another insulation product that would be effective: Roxul Rockboard. It is made from rock wool and is inflammable. Similar to the Roxul rockwool that is available off the shelf in most HD stores, Rockboard can be ordered from the Read More
Dear Aaron:

Home Depot does sell another insulation product that would be effective: Roxul Rockboard. It is made from rock wool and is inflammable. Similar to the Roxul rockwool that is available off the shelf in most HD stores, Rockboard can be ordered from the Customer Service or Pro desk. Ask for Roxul Rockboard 60 with the "foil facing" option. This will make the surface easy to clean.
Roxul Rockboard provide R4 insulation value per inch. You can simply add layers to increase the insulation. It is light and rigid, similar to foam board, and easy to install.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
Dear Judeth: As other replies have noted, Reflectix provides no sound proofing. Home Depot sells Roxul rock wool, however, which much denser than fiberglass and offers very effective sound reduction. See: Roxul Safe'nSound, HD Model # RXSS31525 Internet # 202531875 Store SKU # 982937 We use Roxul to firestop basements walls and stairs; it molds kind of like clay and stays where to put it.

If a board-like product would be better for your application, Roxul also makes a board version called RockBoard. It provides the same level of insulation, R4 per inch, and similar sound proofing. You can order it from your Home Depot's Customer Service or Pro desk. Ask for Roxul Rockboard 60, which is available with a white poly or foil facing, which makes it easy to clean.
I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
Dear CC: Because you are asking this question in January, I assume you want to insulate against the cold -- in addition to heat in the summer. If so, Reflectix and other reflective insulation products will not be effective in winter, because cold cannot be "reflected" and warmer air inside your garage is not radiant.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 12, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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? February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Insulation Oven 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! May 19, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 February 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, easy to work with and put up Had no problems cutting and putting it up on the garage doors, need something to hold in place. Don't use gorilla glue. Covered two single doors with ease. March 10, 2015
