Friday FAQ – R-value

Categories: Friday FAQ | Posted: December 25, 2015

Q: What is R-value?

A: R-value is a measure of energy efficiency. The higher the R-value of the insulation, windows, and even a home’s structure, the better the house is able to block the transfer of unwanted hot or cold air through walls and ceiling. Residents of homes with high R-value experience far less variation in temperature-and enjoy lower energy bills-by not having to run a furnace or air conditioner continuously to keep the house comfortable.
