Whether you are looking at decreasing your energy bills while increasing your home energy efficiency, or simply want a warmer home, you need to know what R-values are. Believe it or not, this seemingly esoteric piece of information is rather important to understand if you want to get the most out of your insulation, and ensure that you are actually using the correct insulation for your home. Luckily, it's not that hard to understand.
Now that you know a little more about R-values, and how they work, you can begin ensuring that you have the right rating for your home. To ensure that your home is getting the most out of the insulation, and to also know whether you have a possible insulation problem, you may want to consider having an actual heating evaluation conducted. This simple evaluation can tell you where, and what, the problems are. With that important information in hand you can then go and fix any potential problem, which will help decrease your overall energy bill.
