R Means??

Published May 14th, 2021 by Energy Plus Home Improvements

The “R” in R-Value stands for resistance to heat flow, which means the higher the R-value the higher the insulating value.

When dealing with insulation R-value is typically expressed in two ways:

1. Total R-Value

Which means the total number used to measure in the insulation value of a particular product like batts, boards etc.

2. R-Value Per Inch

Insulation is manufactured from different materials so when a Manufacturer rates their product per inch. All you need to do is Multiply that products one inch R-Value by how many inches of insulation you are getting.

Depending on where you live there are recommendations on what you should add to your existing structure for insulation needs. Check out the Picture below!
