An R-Vlaue is the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. S & E Insulation uses premium materials to bring the highest R-Values needed to insure your home retains as much energy as possible.
When you increase the R-Value in your home, you decrease wasted energy and SAVE on energy bills as well as keep your home free of drafts.
