My shed not completely sealed, be gaps at bottom of the door as well i have a vent installed in the middle of the doorl, but then used the foil to cover and over hang the edges, as well-folded the bottom to try seal bottom more,

My shed is pretty stable seeing 16-18c and then tent will be 22-26C, but the heater is being used alot more then it should be 

I do intend to add extra insulation when more affordable for me as i got exposed concrete wall and floors still atm xD  But i do rate that stuff using it for my own outside shed, it defiantly less efficient then fibreglass, but also different league in pricing :/

A concrete wall has as much insulation as a pane of glass, I used rigid styrofoam against concrete walls, then put wall studs every 24 inches placing batt insulation between studs followed by a vapor barrier. Lots of people will leave the walls unfinished untill they can afford to put wall board on. I would seal all air leaks and take each sheet of plywood off and insulate behind it and if you use batt insulation a proper vapor barrier must be used or the insulation gets wet and becomes useless. You could work on each sheet of plywood one at a time when you can afford to insulate. Just some ideas to get that thing warmer and eventually save you money for buying more growing goodies. 😎 

We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds

So If I used expanding foam it would eventually get wet.

It would melt away or what?

For now thats all I can afford, spent to much already.

I will properly insulate it in time just not affordable atm

It will be fine, I've used it for the same thing quite a few times without issue

Foil backed bubble wrap is NOT insulation, its a reflective thermal barrier...it will reflect the heat already in the shed, if no heat outside of tent, its pretty worthless 😉

 

I covered the whole of the inside of my garage with it mostly to stop the condensation which was forming when it was raining. 

But it definitely helps to keep the temperature up in the garage wether it's classed as insulation or not.

 

Genesis 1:29-God said, “Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you.

@zn thank God... Went to tool station this morning and got 3 750ml cans of acoustic/fire foam.

Says its rated at 58db.. Ideal.

I'm actually fairly confident this will sort my problem out.

@3plantspete to be fair is was pretty reasonable. Think it was £8.30 per can.

Good news lads

After installing the expanding foam I got a solid 20-23c last night in the tent as opposed to 16c I was getting.

Pretty dramatic actually.

Thanks to @zn for the idea.

@3plantspete no problem bro... Just remember to use it sparingly, the panel above my door has proper bulged out after using way to much
