That's easy for me. I don't have to get up for another 9-1/2 hours ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

I try and sleep in until 7 am.

Hi to all,


Jeff, I am going to try to post the folloing days QOD the night before, for the following reasons.

a) I am too busy in the mornings ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
b) To give you more time to look up the answers.
c) I have been getting complaints from the left coast because you have been showing up late for inspections, and using the excuse that you can't leave home with out having done the QOD.

Only kidding guys, it is just easier, what I may start doing if I can get into this routine is to let each poll run for 2 days.

Regards

Gerry

From the responses to the question I think may will be surprised by this, it is practically impossible to buy windows above an R5 value, I myself was shocked over this when buying replacment windows for my home.

Here’s another one that shows recommended R values for different regions.

Can you tell I have no inspections today?

Ok, now I have a question


What does the number portion of an R value actually mean? When you have an R value of 30 does that mean it is 30 times more resistant to thermal transfer than an R value of 1?

Hi to all,


Thanks Patrick that is a nice link, and better than the table that I had been using, I just copied it into MS word so I can torture you all with more insullation questions ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

Hi to all,


Patrick, as you are not gainfully employed today here's everything you ever wanted to know about insullation, but were afraid to ask ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
