Would this work if I wrap it around an inflatable hot tub that sits outside on a patio? I’d use ...

Asked by Ddubba October 16, 2020
2
Answers

Dear Ddubba: No. Reflectix and similar reflective / radiant barrier products provide only R-1 by themselves. The claims on the package are based on a sealed air gap you must build when you install it. You cannot simply wrap it around your inflatable hot tub. Second, reflective / radiant barrier products do not work in the winter because cold cannot be 'relfected' and warmer air, e.g. in the inflatable part of your hot tub, is not radiant. The only way to reduce the electric bill for your inflatable hot tub would be to build a light frame around it, filled with standard insulation, e.g. rock wool batts. You should also insulate the space between the inflatable and the ground under it, e.g. with 2" Foamular 250 foam board. Plus you need a well-insulated lid / cover that seals out cold air. I hope this is helpful, Mark

What is best to wrap 180 degree water pipe pex

Asked by Leo September 18, 2020
2
Answers

Dear Leo: Definitely not Reflectix -- which delivers only R-1 by itself. You must build a sealed 1" air gap to achieve the claimed R-value on the package and marketing materials. This is clearly not possible with PEX pipe. Home Depot sells pipe insulation that is effective. You can also add multiple layers to boost the total R-value. For example see:Armacell Model # HST07812, Home Depot Internet #100585113, UPC Code # 803014116220 Store SKU #420390 Although this product is supposed to 'self seal', it is a good idea to reinforce the adhesive with a strip of foil HVAC tape. This adds R-3.3 If you want to add more insulation, wrap the Armacell with a fiberglass pipe sleeve, where the inside diamter matches the outer diameter of the foam. For example: Model # F15XAD, Home Depot Internet #100162619, UPC Code # 077578018379 Store SKU #170795 Seal the seam and joints / ends with foil HVAC tape. This adds R-3 for a total of R-6. I hope this is helpful. Mark

2 layer will not help, but a good air-gap will. Just look at your windows air-gap. It is the same principle.

Asked by Meeks July 17, 2020

Answer

Dear Meeks: Save your money. Reflectix and similar reflective / radiant barriers provide almost no insulation by themselves -- just R-1. The claims on the package are based on a sealed air space you must build; this sealed air gap is responisble for almost all of the claimed R-value. So stapline Reflectxi to your garage walls will achieve amost nothing in terms of insulation. Real insulation is the only practical and effective option. Home Depot sells foam board and rock wool. for example, which are good for walls. Blown cellulose is good for attics, if you have one above your garage. If your garage walls are concrete block, you will need to build 2x4 walls inside to contain and cover the insulation. If you already have interior walls with drywall, you will need to remove the drywall to fill the stud bays with effective insulation. Garages are notoriously poorly insulalated. Read-up on insulation on the Web. Fine Homebuilding is a good source. I hope this is helpful. Mark

Asked by Gunslinger June 24, 2020
2
Answers

Dear Gunslinger: Reflectix was required by the FTC to publish a 'fact sheet' listing the actual R-value for various installations. A copy is available on their website. Here is what it says about a cathedral ceiling: Cathedral Ceiling (Southern US) 1 One Air Space 0.75” between the product and the top of the fiberglass R-6.0 Summer (down) R-2.0 Winter (up) Cathedral Ceiling (Northern US) 1 One Air Space 0.75” between the product and the inside of the ceiling sheathing (sheetrock) R-7.0 Summer (down) R-1.0 Winter (up) They do not provide a certified R-value for two layers, but you can see two key factors: (1) The R-value depends on a sealed air gap, which provides most of the benefit. (2) Reflective barriers like Reflectix do not perform well in the winter, because there is no 'radiant energy' to reflect, and cold cannot be relfected. In short, standard insulation provides superior performance, winter and summer, e.g. blown cellulose, rock wool and fiberglass. All three are sold by Home Depot and can be installed by the average homeowner. Read up on the details for installation; there are many good articlea on the Web, e.g. from Fine Homebuilding and Green Building Advisor. There is one application where a radiant barrier like Reflectix will provide a unique benefit: in a standard ventilated attic on hot summer days. If you simply lay a radiant barrier down on your attic floor, over whatever insulation is there, it will reflect ~24% of the heat flux from the roof into rooms below, and reduce your HVAC costs by 3 to 4%. You will need to shake the dust off the reflective barrier every few years, which sharply reduces reflectivity. This does not eliminate the need to insulate your attic with standard insulation, of course. The best option for a standard ventilated attic is blown cellulose, which is relatively easy to install on your attic floor over whatever insulation is already there. Home Depot rents blowers to install cellulose. I hope this is helpful. Mark

Answers

Dear SMK: Reflectix and similar reflective / radiant barrier products are not recommended on dual pane windows. The added heat can permanently damage the seals. A better option is external shades, which block the solar heat before it enters your home. Home Depot sells them and they are easy to install. For examples, type "coolaroo exterior shade" into the search box at the top of the Home Depot website. They are easy to install, but Home Depot's Customer Service Desk can also arrange for installation on your home, if needed. I hope this is helpful. Mark

Asked by bert April 18, 2020

Answers

Dear Bert: Reflectix and similar reflective / radiant barrier products are definitely not the right option for your stone crawl space. Reflective / radiant barriers cannot reflect cold, and require a sealed air gap for hot temperatures. (Not achieveable with a stone crawl space, where hot temps are also unlikely.) If you live an area with cold or hot temps, you should insulate the floor of your home -- rather than the walls of the crawl space. Fill the joist bays with rock wool, then cover the joists with 2" Foamular foam board and seal all of the joints and edges to block air leaks. Use HVAC duct sealant for the joints and small gaps. Use the 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff spray foam for larger gaps. Home Depot sells all of these products. I hope this is helpful. Mark

This is my review so far. 10/11/2020 I purchased This Reflectix 16 in. X 100 ft. Double Reflective Insulation roll with staple tab edge, to insulate a porch that is is 10 ft deep, by 20 ft. across. I opened my first roll of 6 rolls that ordered. I started cutting the roll into 10 ft lengths, and was expecting to have 10 rolls when I was done. HOWEVER, When I got to the last piece, of the roll, I was thinking I SHOULD have a 10 foot length to finish off the 100 ft. roll. Because, 10 X 10 ft lengths divided by a 100 foot roll, should come out even. RIGHT? WRONG!!!!!!! It was 2 ft short, I have an 8 foot piece left over??? How did that happen??? SO??? NOW>>>> I have 9 rolls @ 10 feet, 1 roll @ 8 feet... and NOT enough to finish my project. I THOUGHT bought enough to do THE WHOLE project.... NOT Almost the whole project!!! If You do a little more simple math, 2ft short per roll on the 6 rolls I bought 2 ft X 6 rolls = A Total of 12 feet SHORT!!! That Equates to a full joist run plus a bit from another short??? NOW? Should I Have to make up for it??? HOW, does that happen ??? I ordered the 6 rolls @ 100 feet each, , for delivery... I had it all shipped to my home, to be able to work on it this weekend. I am NO WHERE NEAR a Home Depot, Hence the DELIVERY... So I can NOT just Run out for another, ONE roll, either... and what??? SO I can spend another 50 bucks more for a full roll, ...only to use 10 feet? I already ORDERED, Had Shipped and PAID for WHAT I NEEDED! Not what the People @ Reflectix seemed to think... would be close enough! I guess MY thought is, IF you are going to RIP PEOPLE OFF, ... be a nice bunch and At least have the decency to throw in a disclaimer in your header, that states something like this, "Due to the fact WE can not be bothered by Quality control... The rolls We advertise as 100 feet, are actually only Approximately 100ft, give or take a few feet. We recommend that, Just So you are able to complete your project hassle free, you might want to order an extra roll @ 50 bucks a pop! "

Until I replace my old, old windows, this is the best insulation I've found that is easy to use and durable. The product is inexpensive and easy to use. I wish the height was double from 16 in to 32 in for my taller windows. It was very easy to double it by taping it together to make the height that I needed. I'm buying another roll for my water heater, crawl space and one more for my parents as a Christmas gift.

INSULATING MISS BINKY'S CAT HOUSE. The outdoor pet house I purchased for my Cat (Miss Binky) wouldn't hold heat during the winter even with 40 watt light fixture in the house fed by a GFI outlet. I could feel the heat escaping through the plastic walls. To correct this I purchased a 16" x 25' roll of Reflectix and installed the product on the interior of the cat house which corrected the problem as most of the heat from the light bulb is now trapped inside the cathouse. I used Liquid Nails FUZ-IT to glue the Reflectix to the walls. The installation was easy and resembled working with a fabric. Even though I'm fairly inept, the project came out fine and Miss Binky has a warm place to spend the winter. I'll be at my Daughter's house tomorrow insulating her dog house for "Panda".

I'm installing this currently to add some R-value in a cathedral ceiling prior to insulation. Testing joist temperature with IR thermometer, and this product is dropping the temp 10-15 degrees F in direct sun. I was a little skeptical before I started; now I'm glad I used it. I stapled in the middle as well to ensure a snug fit, as I will be leaving a 1" gap for ventilation to ridge rafter, and didn't want product to sag.

Easy to install on HVAC hard ducts when using the foil tape. I cut 17" lengths, wrapped loosely enough to slide/rotate around duct. gave a little push and did another. Taped around joined ends and seams and repeated. I could push 10 ft of straight 6" duct with no problem. Bends are a bit of work to cover if they're tight and you don't remember your geometry. Mine were those hard rotatable sections and they turned out not neat -- but covered. Served my needs well and BIG difference in temperature of duct with A/C on. I don't want A/C to cool my basement- now it's all going up to the living areas. A/C cycles off much quicker.

This is my second review since I completed the project. On a blazing hot sunny day it was very hot inside the aluminum skinned shed. You can feel the heat radiating down from the roof. As you moved under the roof to where the product was installed it was like walking under a shade tree. As one complained about the tbs, it takes a little learning curve on how to get the staple table to work. On the first side that you folded over to staple, place the staple close to the edge of the product and staple several feet on one side only. This gives you a little slack to grab the other side to get the staple tab started. The tab is about one inch on each side. This 12x24 foot shed took six rolls of 16"x100' of product including the ceiling. In the photo the shop lights are the Commercial Electric 4 ft. White LED Linkable Shop Light purchased at Home Depot.

A real nice product. I using this in an non-insulated prefab storage shed. In South Florida intense heat, humidity and sun on the aluminum siding acts like an oven on the inside. Reflecting the heat was more efficient than trying to insulate it with 3.5 inches of fiberglass. The fiberglass would act like a sponge and not allow the walls to breathe. The project is not complete but it does go in very easy. This is nearly identical to the solar reflective panels you can buy for your vehicle windshield. There is a similar product in the attic space of my home stapled to the roof rafters and it really keeps the temperature down so I know this product will work. My only complaint is HD should carry this product in its stores.

I decided to install this material according to manufacturer recommendations in an enclosed section of a cabin I am building to warm things up a bit until i put in the full course insulation. I installed this by stapling to width between the stud walls and trusses. The exterior at this point is the James Hardie fiber cement boards over 15# felt as vapor barrier. Interior does not have any drywall or paneling yet. My gut feel that this was extremely easy to install paid off and I had some insulation inside the 10'x10' enclosed working area in half a day using nothing but staples and a utility knife to cut to length. Now here comes the surprising part. Before adding the insulation, my little Mr. Heater portable buddy set to low heat could keep a seven degree Fahrenheit warmer interior. I was happy with that as it was but then after I installed this insulation, the same heater on the same setting could maintain a 20 degree Fahrenheit warmer interior! (I use an exterior/interior digital thermometer while I work) It was well worth the price and the value, knowing that when I begin adding the rigid wall insulation my initial quick fix will also add to the overall R value of the walls and also help keep things cool inside during the summer! I plan to use this over the rest of the building project too given the economic value and improved heat retention.
