Insulation Basics: What R-Values Mean to You

The R-values of the insulation in your home make a big impact on your conditioning bills and interior comfort. These values indicate how long the insulation resists heat transfer, and each numeric digit behind the “R” indicates an hour’s worth of thermal protection. The R stands for resistance and the type of heat that insulation blocks is the kind that travels through solid objects, like your roof, floor and walls.
