Help Me Choose - Single or Double Bubble Insulation?
Single and double bubble insulation both function in the same way. They both utilize the principles of air space and radiant barrier to stop heat transfer from one surface to another. They are also both equally effective at achieving a 100% Class 1 vapor barrier. So how do you know which one to choose? Check out this video to find the answer!
