Insulation Update

 Could  EZ Cool’s insulation claims be true?

How come everybody doesn’t know about this stuff? Here are some specs that were taken when a Citroen was being insulated: (Check out the work that was done here.)

The room temperature, just above the Citroen’s floor,  registered 57 degrees Fahrenheit.
With no insulation. 20 minutes with a shop blow heater. 80.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
With EZ Cool’s insulation. 20 minutes with a shop blow heater. 62.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

There is a company called Insulation for Less that even has some that is “decorative” with a wood grain. They have this to say:

        • R-value 16 unaffected by humidity
        • Prevents 97% of radiant heat transfer
        • Vapor barrier
        • Prevents condensation
        • 19dba contact noise reduction
        • 90 degree celsius (194 fahrenheit) contact temperature rating
        • UV resistance
        • Does not promote mold or mildew
        • Does not provide for nesting of rodents, bugs or birds
        • Seals around nails (no leak)
        • Energy Star Qualified : ICC-ES Recognized
        • Member of US Green Building Council – Made with 100% recyclable virgin raw materials
        • Over 2 billion square feet sold worldwide.

I am a believer

The moisture control and the r-value and the ease of insulation and the price and the rat/mouse proof, and the fire retardant and the ……
If the topper goes the way of aluminum this insulation will be tops on the essentials list.
I will need to add adhesive and some joinery material and a sharp implement to the essentials list, also.

This is for the aluminum top … Perhaps the fiberglass will not need the extra insulation/moisture control.
