Insulation blocks heat transfer, and in some cases, sound transfer.

The R-value is used to measure the insulation's resistance to heat flow. Therefore, the higher the R-value, the better the insulation is at blocking heat transfer.

Insulation can improve a home's energy efficiency by either keeping heat in or out, depending on the season.

For the best in energy efficiency in any season, the Department of Energy recommends insulating attic spaces, ducts in unconditioned spaces, cathedral ceilings, exterior walls, floors above unheated garages, and foundations.
