Posted on Monday June 9, 2014

What is the K Factor of Insulation? The K factor of insulation represents the material’s thermal conductivity or ability to conduct heat. Usually, insulation materials have a K Factor of less than one. The lower the K factor, the better the insulation. The textbook definition of the K factor is “The time rate of steady […]
