What Is R-Value?

R-value is a measure of the insulating material’s ability to resist conductive heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the resistance, thus the greater the thermal protection and effectiveness in preventing heat transfer.

Understanding the R-value is crucial when choosing the right insulation for your home. Selecting high-R-value insulation is paramount for most homes, especially in regions like Fort Wayne, Elkhart and Crown Point, Indiana, where winters can be harsh and summers humid.

In these areas, where temperature extremes are common, insulation with an R-value ranging from R-38 to R-60 for attics and R-13 to R-25 for walls is recommended. This higher R-value helps maintain comfortable indoor temperatures year-round, reducing energy consumption and utility costs.

However, the best R-value can vary based on local climate, building design, and budget constraints. In colder climates like Fort Wayne, where heating needs are high, opting for insulation with a higher R-value may offer better energy efficiency.

Conversely, in milder climates like Crown Point, where cooling demands dominate, focusing on insulation with excellent thermal resistance against heat transfer is crucial.

Consulting with insulation experts familiar with local climate patterns and building codes can help homeowners decide on the best insulation R-value for their specific needs and location.

FAQs About Interior Wall Insulation

Does wall insulation “go bad”?

Wall insulation doesn’t go bad, but it can lose effectiveness over time. If you have fiberglass batts, these can shift and fall. Similarly, blown-in insulation can settle and become compacted. It’s best to have your insulation inspected every five to 10 years to ensure it still provides the appropriate protection level.

What is the best wall insulation?

There are many types of insulation available for wall spaces. Rigid foam, sheep’s wool, blown-in, spray foam and fiberglass batts are the most common forms of wall insulation in the U.S.

Should you insulate interior walls?

Insulating interior walls has minimal thermal benefits. However, it can provide considerable sound barriers, making it easier to work, sleep, rest and relax.

Can you have too much wall insulation?

Yes, it’s possible to over-insulate your home. When this happens, you can create an uncomfortable environment. Too much insulation allows moisture to get trapped between layers, negatively affecting insulating properties and indoor air quality.

What are the benefits of proper wall insulation?

Proper wall insulation offers many benefits, including:

  • Improved comfort
  • Reliable energy savings
  • Superior protection of your property

Can I use spray foam insulation in wall cavities?

Absolutely. Spray foam insulation is ideal for use in wall cavities. As the foam expands, it fills in gaps and cracks and seals air leaks, providing a solid layer of protection against outdoor elements.

What additional steps will improve the thermal protection around my home?

In addition to insulating attics and crawl spaces, it’s advisable to check weather stripping around windows, doors and skylights. You should also seal any air leaks around vents, masonry, lights, and other fixtures.
