I'm not sure if that will bring your temps up at all if that's what your trying to do. If you use the foil be sure and use the flat side as the other side will cause hot spots.

Hot spots and the stuff is delicate and becomes a general pain.

Foil is almost worthless as a reflective material.

Paint your walls with a FLAT, pure white paint.

It's almost as reflective as Mylar, and is easier to maintain.

Good luck to you man!!!!

You can get mylar for $2.50 for a package of 5 - 2ft by 2ft squares at Michaels arts and crafts store. This stuff will bring your temp up.
