1305 Conductance - Insulation Energy Efficiency - The Basics -

Image Text: The conductance (C) is equal to the number of BTUs that will pass through one square foot of the material over the course of 1 hour (with a 1 degree Fahrenheit temperature difference across the material) > in this case, the conductance (C) of the concrete block wall is 0.9 > T degrees Fahrenheit > T + 1 degree Fahrenheit > 1 square foot > 0.9 BTUs > 8 inch concrete block
