Costco — e shield insulation
Costco is currently promoting a product called E Shield that is installed by K-Designers that is guarnteed to save you 25% off your energy bills. Before you contact Costco, visit a site called energysavers.gov, that has research about radiant barriers. You'll find they are not recommended for cold climates and will not result in 25% energy savings or anywhere near that.
If you decide to respond to Costco's email, as I did, you will not have a pleasant experience. K-Designers is a high pressure sales company. Yes, I received the 10% costco discount, but also was given an even larger and more significant discount if I would sign the deal while the sales rep was still here and if I would allow them to take pictures of my home and if I would write letters of testimonial about the product. What about the 25% energy savings? Given the price quoted, K-Designers could easily give me the maximum one year guaranteed savings of $500 and they would still have been over three times higher than a local installer. Please do your reseach and get local installer bids before contacting Costco. Then if its still a good deal from K-Designers, go for it. You'll even be offered free vinyl shutters and a brass door bell button!
This is a high pressure sales job that is not up to Costco standards of quality and customer service. It is an overpriced product that has no value in cold climates and some value in hot climates. Costco did cancel my order upon request, so I'm only out four hours of my time listening to a high pressure sales talk and internet research and $13.65 to send the overnight contract cancellation to K-Designers. Research before you contact Costco on this one...I think they were taken in by the sales presentation, just like me!
