    Not sure if this every been asked here

    What can I do w/the foil-backed insulation the company used to wrap the new duct work? Serious, no goofy answers.

    The boilers are wrapped, we're gonna have more insulation blown in later. Don't really know what to do; hate to let it sit there.


    This looks like a full roll of R5.2/4.2 insulation 1.5 inches

    You could wrap your water tank with it, or just throw it up in the attic or in a wall somewhere. Or double wrap your duct work to maybe double its r-value.

    You could call them, and let them know they forgot a roll there.
