Spray Foam Insulation R-Values
Long Term Thermal Resistance (LTTR)
What's the real R-value?
LTTR is a 15-year, time weighted average of thermal resistance, equivalent to a 5-year aged R-Value test at lab conditions. Rather than the actual 15-year aged R-Value, LTTR is a calculation based on the “Aging Process”, which averages the R-Value over a given period of time.
Make sure that the estimate you receive is quoting the LTTR R-value. The initial R-value rating is being used by some contractors, resulting in cheap prices up front for clients and a sub-standard installation that at times becomes less than is required by Municipal Building Standards, let alone the impact on energy usage and comfort.
At KB Insulators, we always quote the LTTR R-value, which represents the true long term R-value of your insulation.
A subsidiary of Kidd Bros Construction Ltd., KB Insulators has over 34 years experience built upon the principles of honesty, integrity and fair prices. You can be confident selecting the insulation contractors at KB Insulators.
