David Jones, owner Jones Air conditioning of Naples Fl, talks about efficient insulation selection. There are many types and applications R-Values of Insulation. There are certain industry standards that apply to all application within the home or a commercial building. For instance, blanket insulation (fiberglass wrapped in film) can be used for attics or crawl spaces. We typically recommend it be 3 1/2' thick carry an R-Value of R-11 - depending on the climate and local weather patterns.
As you see the insulation application below, rolled fiber glass insulation application which also includes a moisture barrier of aluminum wrapping. Ceiling using Batts (greater thickness of insulation) my be used to increase your insulation value as high as R-35. Call Jones Air Conditioning and let us provide and estimate at 239-331-4416.
R-Value (Insulation Value) is a common known term for the thermal conductivity of an object. It measures how much heat can be transferred through an object. For instance, bare sheathing between wood studs for residential walls (pine, fir, maple) has has an R-Value of about 1.00. This means is will take 1 BTW of heat to travel 1 inch - not much thermal resistance.
Properly installed exterior wall installation (fiber, polystyrene, cellular) can increase the value to R-6 or R- 7. No doubt about it; insulation against exterior exposures will save energy and shield the household from unwanted heat, cold or moisture.

Insulation can be the difference between a comfortable home and one that is either too cold or too hot. Below are some tips that could help you with correctly insulating your home.
· Make sure your home is properly insulated. This is the single most important step in conserving energy. Thermal insulation should be specified in terms of thermal resistance (R-values). R-30 (10") is recommended for ceilings, and R-11 (3-1/2”) for exterior walls and floors over unheated areas. In colder climates, consider additional insulation.
· Infiltration of humid outside air is your heating and air conditioning system's worst enemy—it could account for 15% to 30% of air conditioning energy requirements. Find the places where air can sneak into the home and plug them with caulking, weather-stripping or plastic. Also, weather-strip and caulk around all entrance doors and windows.
