Insulation R Value

Insulation R Value

Insulation R Value is a measure used to determine the thermal resistance of insulation used in the building of homes or office buildings.  Insulation works by restricting the flow of heat or sound through walls and also stops drafts that can flow through crack and gaps in older timber flooring.

Uninsulated homes are at risk of higher heating or cooling costs as they loose valuable heat during winter and gain unwanted heat over summer. Materials known to significantly resist the flow of heat or sound are called insulators or insulation and are installed into ceilings, floors and walls to minimise the need for heating and cooling or to soundproof your home.  The higher the Insulation R Value the higher the level of insulation.

Heat and sound can pass through any material, however, some materials are more resistant others. While timber is a better insulator than metal, glass and air, it still allows a substantial and expensive transfer of heat unlike materials such as animal fur, thick clothing, and even still air, which are more resistant.
