Weaver: Beaver Board and Upson Board: reflective or foil insulation) the total R-Value effect cannot be calculated by straight addition of all the component R-Values. Air leakage in a wall construction can also quickly overcome any advantage of the wall's insulating value. In the SI system the most common units are J/kg K. Unit conversion: 1 J/kg K = 5.97994 ft lb/slug °R,   and 1 ft lb/slug °R = 0.167226 J/kg K. The Universal Gas Constant - Ru - appears in the  ideal gas law and can be expressed as the product between the Individual Gas Constant - R - for the particular gas - and the Molecular Weight - Mgas - for the gas, and is the same for all ideal or perfect gases: Ru = Mgas R                               [2]. Bottom line: find and fix un-wanted air leaks from the occupied space into the attic or into the roof cavity.

Thanks Fernando, ON Mon, 20 Jan 14, 11:04am probably from United Kingdom  Reply to this comment. Standard window films ... U-value and emissivity values vary for standard window films, depending on the type of film, with emissivity values ranging from 0.70 to 0.81,. Box 380, Weedsport NY 13166-0380 Keene Christopher, Principal Telephone: (315) 834- To use the R-value calculator, how to enter the new material list?? So you can actually calculate "U" for your specific roof, but with the warnings I gave that this is still only theoretical since the true heat loss or gain is affected by air leaks and other factors. APT Bulletin, Vol. Mathematically, "R" is simply the reciprocal of the two measures discussed in more detail below: U - the measure of heat transfer (the ability of a substance to conduct heat) discussed above and also at "U", K - the coefficient of heat transmission discussed at "K", Heat transfer rates through a roof (or walls or floors) are usually calculated and expressed in U-Values - detailed at U-VALUE inspectapedia.com/heat/HVAC_Definitions.php#UValue, U-value measures the ability to transfer heat, an inverse condition, to heat movement resistance, or in other words, or U-value measures the ability of a substance to allow the transfer of heat. The R-Value calculator is best used as follows: Work out all the different materials and surfaces that make up the wall/ceiling or surface you want to work out the R-Values and U-Values for. When buying various insulation materials you will almost always see an "R" value quoted for the material. Remember the horizontal or vertical orientation of the material is important to get its insulation value correct. R values and heat loss: The "R" value of a material is its resistance to heat flow through the material. for 1/2" thickness, INSULATED VINYL SIDING as HOME INSULATION, AirKrete® Green Insulation Specifications, Dow® TUFF-R™ and Super TUFF_R™ POLYISOCYANURATE INSULATION, 10-Wall Polycarbonate Sheet, 16mm/10X E.S. energy efficiency, sustainable development, passive solar, insulation, buildings. INSULATION R-VALUES & PROPERTIES at InspectApedia.com - online encyclopedia of building & environmental inspection, testing, diagnosis, repair, & problem prevention advice. This can be really helpful when understanding the average overall pressure that might be affecting a building in a particular area by using weather bureau data. These applications will - due to browser restrictions - send data between your browser and our server. Wood siding, 1/2-inch clapboard or shiplap. You should fix this and/or have a toggle for people to convert. ON Mon, 26 Sep 11, 2:56am probably from United States  Reply to this comment, Is there a chance you would look at an app for iphone ipad? If someone types in the R-value from the US, which is typically SAE units, they get the wrong answer in U-value. Remember to take into account any air boundaries you may have, such as with the outside or with the inside of rooms. In general, higher "R" means more resistance to heat loss and therefore lower heating or cooling bills for the building. Tectum: a patented cementitious wood fiber EPS-core insulating roof deck tile, plank, or panel of several thicknesses.

The most-insulated roof structure I've built combined insulation of the space between rafters with a layer of high-R foil-faced foam board on the underside of the rafters. If you want to promote your products or services in the Engineering ToolBox - please use Google Adwords. Simple HTML is supported i.e etc. With a 2x4 wall you have 3 1/2" in the wall cavity that can be insulated. The Universal and Individual Gas Constants are known from the Ideal Gas Law. Installers say expanding fiberglass assists in sealing air leaks, Fiberglass panel, rigid (fiberglass "boards").

Air, fiberglass, something else? "The Small Homes Council (our original name) was organized in 1944 during the war at the request of the President of the University of Illinois to consider the role of the university in meeting the demand for housing in the United States. The universal gas constant can be defined in terms of Boltzmann's constant k as: Ru = k NA                                 [3], wherek = Boltzmann's constant = 1.381 x 10-23 [J/K]NA = Avogadro Number = 6.022 x 1023 [1/mol].
The Council's researchers answered many critical questions that would affect the quality of the nation's housing stock. Have a nice day, Air Krete®, Air Krete Inc., P.O. How did people use different kinds of spaces in their homes? 2-How can find R-Value? Click to Show or Hide Citations & References, Jet-Board.com; 2.1 lbs/sq.ft. The greater the temperature difference across the roof the greater the rate of heat loss. The R-Value calculator is best used as follows: Remember, the values calculated here should be taken as a rough guide, as certain materials (i.e. The induvidual gas constant, R, for a gas can be calculated from the universal gas constant, Ru (given in several units below),  and the gas molecular weight, Mgas: R = Ru/Mgas                                [1]. Association for Preservation Technology International (APT), HOME INSPECTION EDUCATION COURESES (Canada), HOME INSPECTION EDUCATION: HOME STUDY COURSES, Air film, inside surface, still air, + reflective surface or barrier, directions vary: horizontal, vertical, up, or down, Dead air space in wall cavity, 3/4" to 4" (winter), 0.1457 in/sec coefficient, or 0.3407 in/sec flow rate at 68 degF H2O, Spills out of wall or roof insulation if facing is cut, Ceiling Panels, suspended or drop ceilings, Cellulose insulation, spray-on (wet spray), Typical residential weight concrete 8" wall = R 2.5, 8" thick concrete slab or foundation wall has an R-value of about 1.04, Typical low-pile carpeting with foam or rubber carpet padding, "blue jean" insulation batts fireproofed with boric acid, Questionable data, Some sources claim 2.64, Fiberboard 1/2" intermediate density, per inch, Fiberboard insulating sheathing, regular density, per inch, Questionable; [30] Divide this per inch number by 2 to obtain the R-value for 1/2" regular density fiberboard = R 1.32, Fiberboard insulating sheathing, 25/32" thick, regular density, per inch, Fiberboard nail base insulating board, 1/2-inch, 6" = about R-22. U-values measure the thermal transmittance of heat in or out of a building and combines heat movement by all principles that are occurring at a building: radiation, convection, and conduction. Could you help? For all of these air space R-values also see Masonry citations below. how to convert US value R30 to Europe W/m2 K ? Apologies for the delay. We cannot calculate the R-value of a wall assembly until we know the complete list of all of the components that comprise the wall, and their individual dimensions and also the actual wall construction and dimensions including where there are air spaces. The inverse of conductivity is resistivity (or R per unit thickness). Doesn't work! However moving right along to viewpoint #2, Watch out: in my opinion increasing R-value to reduce the rate of heat loss in a roof is entirely and only theoretical.
