If you’re looking for a way to increase the energy efficiency of your radiant floor or snow melt system, Hydro Pump Company recommends Reflectix Concrete Slab Insulation.
Reflectix Concrete Slab Insulation is an innovative and easy to handle product used as insulation under concrete slabs, radiant floor systems, and snow melt systems to improve energy efficiency and provide more even heat distribution. Reflectix Concrete Slab Insulation consists of seven layers. The first layer of white poly is bonded to foil to protect from lime in curing concrete. Each outer layer is bonded to a tough layer of polyethylene for strength. Two inner layers of insulating bubbles resist conductive heat flow while a center layer of polyethylene gives Reflectix high reliability and strength. All of these layers combined provide an R-value of 1.1.
Reflectix Concrete Slab Insulation works especially well to enhance the performance of radiant floor systems and snow melts. The foil within the product acts to spread out the heat signature of the heating coils, resulting in a more even distribution of heat on the floor surface and a more comfortable floor.
Reflectix Concrete Slab Insulation offers a number of additional benefits, including:
- Vapor and radon retarder
- Non-toxic and non-carcinogenic
- Fiber free
- Environmentally safe
- Installs quickly and easily
- Not effected by moisture or humidity
- No nesting characteristics for insects
- Resistant to fungi and bacteria
