Understanding Heat Loss And R-Value
When heat escapes from your home, the temperature inside drops and your furnace must work harder to maintain the environment you want. Attic insulation keeps your home comfortable and reduces HVAC strain by resisting heat loss.
This video explains how insulation products are rated by their resistance to heat transfer. A product’s R-value quantifies its ability to prevent home heat loss, with higher R-values indicating better insulating properties. When preparing for crawlspace or attic insulation installation, factors such as R-value and your local climate will dictate the amount of insulation necessary for the job.
