  • Updated Handbook: Understanding and Using Reflective Insulation, Radiant Barrier, and IRCC's

    How does a radiant barrier work? Will reflective insulation work in my barn? What is an interior radiation control coating?

    All of these questions and more can be answered by reading RIMA's handbook, Understanding and Using Reflective Insulation, Radiant Barrier, and Interior Radiation Control Coatings. RIMA or the Reflective Insulation Manufacturer's Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the research, knowledge and use of reflective insulation, radiant barriers, and IRCC's.

    Reflective Insulation Basements - Rima 2014This is the third update to this handbook since its introduction in 1999. The handbook is designed to provide users with a working knowledge for using reflective materials. Readers can understand the concepts and terminology of reflective insulation and discover the physics of reflective technology as well as learn about the different materials, applications, and installation procedures between the different technologies.

    Whether you are looking to add a radiant barrier to your attic, insulate your basement wall, or work with radiant barrier paint (IRCC), this handbook is an important read for anyone who wants to better understand reflective insulation.

  • Crawlspace Insulation: An Ideal Bubble Foil Application

    Crawlspace Insulation - Staple TabIf we had to name one of the best performing applications for our Tempshield bubble foil, it would have to be for crawlspace insulation. Solid r-values are achieved in this application as well as foil insulation's proven ability in moisture prone areas. There are two standard insulation methods.

    You can run insulation perpendicular to the bottom of the floor joists or use Tempshield staple tab foil insulation to insulate between the floor joists. Either way you've created a radiant barrier to block the transfer of radiant heat.

    This installation is also perfect for beneath floors with radiant heat. When you insulate under the floor joist, the lost radiant heat from the floor is reflected back decreasing your energy demand. This is especially important in crawlspaces that are not air sealed during your heating season. You can easily have a 50 degree temperature swing between the inside temperature of your home and that of your crawlspace. Putting a radiant barrier in place can be a quick, inexpensive project that can insulate a key area of your home with immediate savings in your heating bills.

  • Duct Wrap Insulation on MSN Real Estate Article

    Duct Wrap Insulation Did you know our products were featured on's Real Estate Page? We make mention of it on our website but don't link directly to the post. Several years ago we were contacted by a writer doing an energy saving article. Of course we agreed to participate.

    We loved the slideshow and all of the products that were chosen. We have used a cutaway of the article as promotional content in the sidebar of our website as well for some time. We're currently redesigning the look of our website and this cutaway will not be part of the future design.

    As the picture is of me I cannot tell you how happy I am that it is coming down. We are still going to promote the article as you can see but only from time to time. To have a little fun and encourage those of you who read this article, we will take 5% off your next order if you call in and let us know you miss the picture. Hopefully someone will benefit from this post and we can get a laugh. As always, thanks for shopping at the InsulationStop, the leader in radiant barrier and reflective foil insulation products.
