Reflectix/Foil insulation

Post by sread » Fri Jul 11, 2014 11:13 am

Has anyone used foil bubble wrap insulation instead of foam or fiberglass? Pros, cons, advice? Thanks!

Doesnt that go hand in hand with the standard insulation? I am considering using a foil sided bubble wrap inside my tiny house with the foil side facing inwards as a radiant heat shield.

Ahhh so the foil wrap would be placed with addition to another insulator?

Yes from my understanding it adds another layer of insulation to your home. It reflects heat back into the house as well, further reducing heat loss.
