Insulation Installers Can Help You Decide On The Right R-Value for You

As insulation installers in Kansas City and Raytown, MO, Star Companies wants our customers to have the best knowledge about our products they can get. That’s why we like to discuss our products in our blog. This time, we’d like to focus on a standard measurement you might have seen on insulation packaging, R-Value.

R-value is a measurement of the insulation’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the higher the level of resistance and the greater the insulating power. The area you live or work in will have different requirements for R-value depending on the area’s climate and the type of building. Attic insulation installers can advise you on what R-value you need, as well as potentially make suggestions about increasing or decreasing values depending on your situation.
