A new low for radiant barrier misstatements
Don't you love radiant barrier websites? They are a constant source of amusement. My latest favorite stupidity comes from the EnergyFoil website, which helpfully defines R-value. Are you ready?
"An example would be a product with an R-Value of R-19 which means that it will take about 19 hours for the temperature on the inside to become the same as the temperature outside. R-38 = 38 hours, R-11 = 11 hours, etc."
And all these years, I mistakenly thought that R-value was 1/U.
Guess what? The website displays the RESNET logo and the Energy Star logo at the bottom of the page.
