Don't forget R-value when designing your new home [Video]
There are plenty of factors to consider when designing your new home, and it's important to consider how the performance in one part of your home will impact the rest of it. The home's ability to efficiently retain and repel heat, represented by the combined R-value of your home's building materials, is a perfect example.
Building materials with a high R-value, like spray foam insulation, help your home to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Investing in these materials early on will generate significant savings each month.
