Posted By: cbatjesmondWell if I don't report back on temperature differences between Kitchen and Sitting Room before the end of January 2009: Fear the worst! :-) ...Mmmm not sure I'll remember to come back (or even still be around!) in December 2013. I will report back to this thread if anything crops up soon.
Posted By: spinkoxThe thing is - THEY say only 15% of heat loss from a room is through the floor so even if you had 10 layers of Spacetherm it would not make significant difference to the temperature . . .
Posted By: mellie_manWhat humidity do you use!
Posted By: VictorianecoThis stuff any good for an attic conversion? Or cheaper alternatives?
Posted By: ShevekYou'd probably add another zero to achieve same u-value in Aerogel.
Posted By: haplessDiyerI'm planning to use aerogel for insulating some walls were space is an issue (around windows etc so not large areas).Does anyone have any tips on the best form to use. Proctor seem to sell it bonded to various productshttp://www.proctorgroup.com/products/thermal-insulation/spacetherm" rel="nofollow" >http://www.proctorgroup.com/products/thermal-insulation/spacethermIt sounds like they don't recommend fitting with adhesive or screwing. Will nailing direct to masonry work? We have some curved sections as well - would it be possible to plaster direct onto the aerogel somehow?There's also a cork panel producthttp://www.aerogel.uk.com/cork-spaceloft.html" rel="nofollow" >http://www.aerogel.uk.com/cork-spaceloft.htmlDoes anyone have some experiencen with how best to fix it etc?As I understand it, 4 layers would be required (40mm) to achieve a u value of 0.29 meeting building regs requirment for walls in refurbishment.
Posted By: Nick ParsonsBit of a hi-jack, but while you are about, Saint, can I do a query re fixing?I have to try to improve the thermal performance next to a newly-installed all-singing, all-dancing triple-glazed bay window. At the moment the only thing between outside and in is a 20mm wooden cover fillet. I can't just whack in some ordinary insulation, since this area forms part of the (wooden, folding) shutter housing. There *is*, however, just about room for 10mm aerogel and 3mm ply, and, the cover fillet being 20mm thick, there ought to be just enough 'bite' for a screw without popping through to the outside.I am aware of the tendency of aerogel to 'pick up' on drill-bits, but also mindful of the fact that is we try to use nails, we might just pop the cover fillet off. Any thoughts or advice?Thanks,Nick
