Home Style Green - Sustainable Design and Building

In this episode of Home Style Green, I discuss the basic physics of insualation. I give an overview of the three main types of heat transfer, that is conduction, convection and radiation. Most bulk insulation products on the market rely almost entirely on reducing conduction. 

I discuss what 'R-Value' means and the common materials of household insulation products.

Also, for a more indepth discussion on insulation and 'R-Values', its hard to go past Wikipedia:
