What is R-value ?

June 12, 2019
Insulation Blog

R- value is a rating term used on insulation material. The “R” stands for “resistance” and it refers to the resistentense of the material against heat flow. Higher R-value equal to better insulation material. 

Do I need the same R - Value all over my house ?

No, R-value recommendation is based on the desired insulation location. Attic insulation has different R-value recommendations then wall insulation.

What the R-value recommendation for my home ? 

R- value requirements depend on a few factors. Such as:

  • The state that you live in - Property in Montana will need more insulation than a property in Arkansas.
  • Insulation location at the house - Attic, wall, floor, crawl space has different recommendations.
  • If it is new construction or an existing one.

For example, homes in northwest Arkansas will need at least R30 for their attic insulation and at least R19 for their floor insulation.

Proper insulation will reduce your energy costs dramatically and will make your house to be more comfortable than ever.
