Thermo Pads. Worth it?

I've been looking at getting some thermo pads as our last few sleeps in our T25 have been a very cold experience. I have a gas heater which is great but a bit noisy.

Has anyone a set if 'Thermo Pads' and are they worth it? I'd like to know what you think..

I do not have such matts for my T4 syncro Westie yet, but I will :

-they work fine in 30+ degrees C during summer
-they work fine in cold weather for the rest of the year

Now, I am also on the lookout for thermo matts to give less heat loss thru my sidewalls on the pop up roof, too. Same stuff, they are to be hung along the rigde of the Westie-roof and the intension is they keep more of your precious heat in the van longer (than if you only had the canvas "stopping" heat loss during cold weather conditions).

Of course, recident in Norway we get some nights during the winter when I have to use the "land line" 230V power supply to feed the leisure battery but I recogn such matts inside the frontwindows and around the Westfalia pop up walls will help a bit - hate to listen to the air-Eberspächer heater all night thru, thou.
