We haven’t done any official studies on the R value of the product. Having the material tested properly is a quite involved scientific test that would mean using very specialized equipment, but also the amount of trapped air varies in each setup, so any number we provide would be an estimate. We we can say with confidence that the insulating properties of AirSkirts is much higher than a vinyl skirt or even insulation board by virtue of both the amount of material and trapped-air acting as an insulator.
You don’t have to just take our word on this. Here’s some quotes from a few of our customers:
“The weather hit the next day and we have been hovering around 40 degrees during the day and 25 degrees at night for the past 4 days. I have only used electric space heaters in my living areas. I turned on my propane heat for the first time this morning because it dropped down to 20 degrees outside (inside temp was 65 degrees) and I wanted some heat for the basement (I haven’t put my space heater in there yet). My inside temperature has stayed around 70 degrees. I truly am impressed with the difference in the floor temperature!”
“Right now I am winter camping in the snowy Sierra mountains with outside temps as low as 19 degrees. Under the coach temps average 8 to 15 degrees warmer and the furnace rarely comes on at night. With hook-ups we only use a small electric heater and turn on the furnace in the morning to bring the coach up to comfortable temps.”
“First night the temperature outside dropped to 29°F and the temp under the camper only dropped by 2°F.”
