Depending on your geographic location, you’ll need a different R-value to achieve maximum comfort and energy efficiency. What’s R-value? “An insulating material’s resistance to conductive heat flow is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value—the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-value depends on the type of insulation, its thickness, and its density.” To learn more about R-value and how it applies to your location, check out this resource.
Outside of keeping heating and cooling in, other benefits of insulation include:
Home insulation protects the environment—less energy waste leads to a reduced carbon footprint
Home Insulation helps keep you and your family healthy
Home insulation increases the value of your home
