R-value is a measure of how well a two-dimensional barrier, such as a layer of insulation, a window, a complete wall or ceiling, resists the conductive. the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness.
The R-value measures how well building insulation can prevent the flow of heat into and out of the home. Higher R-value means greater insulation performance, and thus more savings on your next heating and cooling bill. The R-value depends on the type of insulation, it’s thickness, and it’s density.
The amount of insulation or R-value you’ll need depends on your climate, type of heating and cooling system, and the part of the house you plan to insulate.
This light-as-air insulation is manufactured from glass that is heated to a liquid and then spun into thin fibers. It's usually use in attics and wall spaces.
Cellulose insulation is a type of wood or paper-based product. It is mechanically blown into or onto empty spaces in the structural part of a house to slow down the transmission of heat or cold.
Spray foam insulation is a safe and effective method of insulating your home when it is installed properly. It's filled gaps in your home’s structure more effectively than other insulation methods.
Batt insulation is made of fiberglass or mineral wool, can be used in nearly any type of insulation application. Batt insulation can be used to insulate floors, walls, ceilings and attics.
