Well this week I'd finally had enough with the heat in our apartment. We live in the new family dorms at the college we attend. We also live on the fourth floor which is the very top floor. Nice thing is there are only two families on the 4rth floor. All other floors have like 12 apartments on them. What sucks is during the winter we had to always have the windows open and/or turn the AC on because all the heat from the floors below would gather in our apartment. That wasn't to bad in winter. But summer is has really sucked. The other day with the AC on it reached 98 degrees in our apartment and in the hallway it was over 100. And the college isnt doing crap about it. So I had finally had enough. We went to Lowes and bought a roll of Reflectix. I covered all the windows and then stuffed a large towel under the front door. Now its in the upper 70's. 20 bucks and life is a hell of a lot better. I even had some left over. With the high heat and the exhaust under the floor it has melted the rubber mat to the metal of the floor. Not only that I could feel the heat cooking my feet thru my boots. So I started the Pig and got the floor nice and hot then pealed the rubber matting up and placed the reflectix under the rubber mat. I now can drive my pig barefoot and feel zero heat. Nice Not sure on the sound deadening qualities but it sure got rid of a bunch of the heat radiating up at us.
