What is an R-Value?

   One of the first things a homeowner should inquire about when considering options for windows is the R-value. The R-value is an specified number that comes from a standard testing procedure to evaluate a material's "resistance to conductive heat transfer". The greater the R-value, the greater a window's resistance to conductive heat transfer.

   R-value is the standard measurement of thermal efficiency. The greater the R-value, the larger the insulating qualities. This number shows how likely the window is to lose heat. An R-value of 1 is considered inefficient, while an R-value of 2 or greater is normal for insulating glass. FAS Windows and Doors offers with a broad range of products with R-values that can satisfy your thermal efficiency needs.

   It's important to keep your environment in mind while scoping out R-values. Educating yourself about your environment and your personal window or door needs is the greatest way to ensure that you get what you want during the replacement or upgrading process.
