Questions & Answers

Can i use it on water heater?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: DIYI
Correction Necessary – per the comment from the “ReflectixTechnicalGroup” – this application provides the highest level of benefit with a spacer installation. Please refer to the June 3, 2016 response from the Reflectix Customer Service - thank you. Reflectix Technical Group

What is it made out of? Aluminum?

It looks like aluminum but I cannot find the material contents anywhere.
Asked by: Ladyfingers
Dear LadyFingers and other Home Depot customers: The new reply from someone in the Reflectix Technical Group is curious. He / she stated: "Respectfully, the responder from Mass. is in error. Reflectix assembly R-values are valid year around. Our products are tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam, in a ASTM C1363 Hot Box." First, Reflectix is NOT tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam insulation. You can see this on the Home Depot website. Fiberglass and foam board are tested as materials, with an R value per inch of thickness -- e.g. R-13 for 3.5" of Owens Corning fiberglass, and R-5 per inch with Foamular foam board. Reflectix is always tested as part of an assembly, e.g. a simulated wall with 2x4 studs, dry wall, an air space and layer of Reflectix. Why? Because the shiny bubble wrap that Reflectix is made from has very little R value -- only R-1. The sealed air gap that you must build / create provides almost all of the claimed R values, not the bubble wrap by itself. Second, the performance of Reflectix and other radiant barriers varies with the temperature -- better in summer and poor in winter. In a cathedral ceiling, for example, Reflectix claims R7 in summer but only R1 in winter in the northern USA. Why? Because cold cannot be 'reflected' and warmer air inside your home does not create much infrared (radiant) energy. Reflectix should provide ASTM test reports that show R-value performance in summer AND winter temperatures for each assembly, and post these reports on their website. I look forward to more detailed information from the Reflectix Technical Group. Mark

Can I use it as insulation agent for a dog house?

I'm about to biuld a dog house and want it to be insulated. Was wondering if this enough for it or not. Thank you
Asked by: Tolete
It depends on what you're looking to achieve. I use it to line cat shelters I make out of plastic storage bins. The bins themselves are pretty tight (except for the entrance opening), but the reflectix helps. Its really value is that it reflects the cats' body heat, raising the inside temperature. It makes for a very warm shelter. Also good in that it resists claws and can be washed or rinsed out. So, in terms of actual insulation, I defer to the experts here. But in terms of reflecting body heat -- it makes the best shelters!

Are the air bubbles separated so it can be cut to size without flattening bubbles not cut into?

16 in. x 25 ft. Double Reflective Insulation with Staple Tab is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Comfort I was in the process of remodeling my home which is 36 years old. I started in the Formal Living Room that has an a shared wall to the garage. Looking arround at The Home Depo I discovered Reflectix, as a thin insulator and radient heat/moisture barier. Essentially I replaced the old R 11 insulation with R13 and put the reflectix over it leaving a 1/2 inch space between the drywall and the Reflectix. Also I purchased 2 1/2 inch aluminum tape and taped every stud, header and electrical outlet to seal it to the Reflectix. Over 2 years time I have done 90% of the first floor of my home this way. Prior to reinsulating I ran my gas furnace at about 74 to 76 degrees for adverage winter comfort. Today for the same comfort level we are down to 67 degrees. The furnace cycles a lot less and not as long when it is on. Also the drafty chill is gone. Another benefit we have found, is that when we have lost power in the winter, the house dosen't chill up as fast and the gas fireplace is able to do a reasonable job of keeping us comfortable for the short period without a furnace. This product installed as I have done is well worth the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I love this stuff. I have 2 shops ( metal and wood) in outside buildings. I used this insulation because it both insulates, and reflects light / heat. The result is a well lit shop, that stays warm with just a small space heater. I wish it cost a little less, but I still think it's a good value. Be sure to get the Reflectix silver tape to seal the joints, or any holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, immediate results I used this product to insulate bare metal ductwork in my basement, in conjunction with the 48" version (the 16" width fit perfectly in between floor beams.) It went on easily, taped together well, and provided immediately noticeable results (air conditioning felt much colder out of vents being fed by insulated ducts.) My only advice would be to use "real" metal tape (not the metalized cloth type that we all have lying around the house) and to insulate every last bend and gap in the ductwork, which when all added up make a significant contribution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great product and does what it claims and worth the money. One word of advise. Use staples equal to or LONGER than 1/2" if stapling to wood. Use regular staples and not the round ones either. The reason is that if you use a shorter staple, it will decrease the space gap underneath in the bubble stuff in the middle thus reducing it's effectiveness. I could actually feel the difference in heat behind a piece of plywood where I had used shorter staples. Luckily this product is very forgiving and I pulled out the shorter staples and used longer ones. Just wish this came in a wider format too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to work with. I used this product to insulate a 30 gal. plastic bin that I turned into a shelter for feral/stray cats. Using this product was much easier that other methods for building homemade insulated shelters. The project was completed in one night. Since the temperature dropped below freezing the last couple of nights, the stray cats took to their new home immediately. My only disappointment was that I had to order it from another state because none of my local Home Depots carried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good results 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for homebrewers doing BIAB I wrap my kettle with reflectix during the mash and it really helps maintain the mash temperature. I lose about 1 F during the summer and 2 F during the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A versatile product We recently purchased and assembled a wood hot tub. It is located outside and exposed to our harsh midwestern winter where the temperatures often dip below zero for extended periods. I knew that the system had freeze protection but wanted to ensure that I would not be up nights worrying about frozen pipes. I looked into the foam type pipe insulation but found it difficult to work with and it was rather expensive for the size I needed. I thought that there had to be other options - something that would come in shorter lengths, was more flexible than the typical 5/8" thick foam pipe insulation and was easy to configure around the various pipe fittings. For awhile now I had been thinking of using Reflectix to insulate my workshop. It occured to me that this product might work well to insulate the hot tub piping so I ordered one 25' roll. It arrived late one day with the outside temps hovering around zero and I could not wait to try it out. Cutting it in short lengths, I used duct tape (which had to be warmed up in order to get it to stick) to fasten the short lengths to the pvc and then wrapping the insulation around the pipe securing the insulation with another piece of duct tape. The pvc fittings were just as easy cutting shorter lengths of insulation, turning them 90 degrees and then some more duct tape. The next morning the outside temperature was ten below but poking my fingers under the insulation on the pipes showed that the Reflectix worked perfect as I could feel that the pipes were very warm, warmer than without the insulation. An additional benefit is that the water looses little of the heat when it runs from the heater to the tub. This is a great product that could have a multitude of uses.
