R values explained


WHAT IS AN 'R' VALUE?

Insulation products should be marketed with an R Value. This is an indication to how well the product can perform.

The R Value is the industry standard measurement of the insulation abilities of a material, that is, the material's ability to withstand the transfer of energy (heat transfer). When it comes to R Values, the bigger the better!

For new homes builders, insulation is not only a favourable building product to create comfortable living areas, but also a legal erquirement, as in recent years the health benefits of insulation have been widely recognised. For new homes, insulation in the walls, ceilings and roof must meet minimum requirements, measured in by R Value. The specific level required differs depending on what area of the country you are located in, and what materials the home is constructed with.
