Understanding R-Values

HVAC Atlanta

Insulating your home can help you save money and keep your family more comfortable, but how do you know if you’re choosing the right insulation for your needs? R-values are designed to help you make the best choice when looking for the ideal insulation. Keep reading and learn how to understand R-values.

A high R-value means that your insulation will be more resistant to heat transfer. In turn, it will do a better job of containing your conditioned air and keeping exterior air from coming into your home, diluting your comfortable atmosphere. The higher your R-value, the less money you can expect to spend on your energy bills. The right R-value for your insulation typically depends on your geographic location, but you should also think about which room of your home you’re insulating when going over R-values. In addition to saving money, high R-values can help your HVAC appliances last longer.

If you have any questions about how R-values work or what they mean, you can always call Estes Services at (404) 361-6560. We take care of Atlanta HVAC, including air conditioner repair services and replacements. Stop by our offices or visit our website to see how we can help.
