At AtticElite, the premier insulation contractor in the Bay Area, we are passionate about achieving optimal insulation performance for our clients. We understand that one of the most important metrics for measuring the effectiveness of insulation is its R-value. Here, we define and explain R-value and how it can help you make informed decisions about your home or business insulation project.
What is R-Value?
R-value is a unit of measurement for thermal resistance and is used to measure the effectiveness of insulation materials. A higher R-value indicates better insulation and greater resistance to thermal energy. Generally, the higher the R-value, the better the insulation.
How is R-Value measured?
R-value is measured by the resistance of the material to heat flow. This is expressed in terms of the thermal resistance of a material per unit area. The higher the R-value, the greater the thermal resistance of the material and the better the insulation.
What is a good R-Value?
The R-value of insulation varies according to the type of insulation material used, its thickness, and the climate in which it is installed. It is important to choose the right type of insulation material and the correct R-value for your particular climate.
In the Bay Area, AtticElite recommends an R-value of R-30 to R-49 for optimal insulation performance. As a BayREN participating contractor, AtticElite provides insulation services that meet the highest standards of efficiency and performance.
