    mga sir, napansin ko na pag nagda drive ako sa kalagitnaan ng init ng metro manila at kinapa ko yung ceiling ng kotse, MAINIT siya. i'm sure nahihirapan ang aircon dahil dito. any suggestions please. ang plano ko ay lagyan siya ng insulator na yung material ay tulad sa ginagamit natin na sunshade. pwede rin kaya ito sa floor? effective ba ito? thanks in advance

    i'm not sure if similar material like Rockwool can be use. but if there is enough space under the seats and engine then you can custom cut the rockwool to fit in. link below is where i bought rockwool materials. i used it in my farm house walls and ceilings though, not in a car.

    a breadloaf van? where the driver sits on top of the engine?
    i tried many things. none worked well enough. i finally got rid of the van, and bought a vehicle whose engine is in front of the driver.
    first thing you should see to, is the factory-spec covers. make sure they are intact, with no deformations or openings or missing bolts.
    i tried those aluminum-backed insulating sheets used in house roofing. it lowered the heat naman, but still not satisfactory.

    i don't like to use fiberglass in a moving, vibrating vehicle. the 'glass needles might aerate and get inhaled.
    and the traditional heat insulator, asbestos, is a proven carcinogen.

    ditto on using fibreglass
    maybe he can try using slimmer but layered double sided insulation "foam"
