The Value of R-Value

R-Value is a measure of thermal resistance. It is a measure of temperature difference across an insulator and the heat flux. The true thermal resistance grade of the material is typically devised by calculating the R-Value, then dividing the R-Value by the depth of the material. We try to determine the temperature difference between the outside of the material, to the inside. That is a genuine thermal resistance grade. The higher the R-Value, the better grade.


Knowing the R-Value of your home’s insulation is very important in saving on energy consumption. With more sophisticated insulators, as well enhanced insulation techniques, we can reduce energy costs which correlates to long term savings.  For more information on how you can save on your energy consumption contact Banker Insulation at 877-708-7815.
