Can anyone tell me how to convert clo to R-value?Specifically, Insultex says it has a clo of 2. What would this equate to in R-value?Daryl
I read somewhere 1 clo = 1 R.But, I'm not sure, have the same question.
google "clo R conversion"usr.decnet.com - 1 R = 1.135 cloefunda.com - 1 R = 1.138 clomsis.jsc.nasa.gov - 1 R = 1.136 clo
...and Richard N. uses 1 R = 1.1322(somehow I trust Richard more than NASA...)But it is an interesting range of values.

1 / 0.8832 = 1.1322 - so those are pretty consistent with Richardit's odd that there are different sources on the internets with slightly different conversion coefficients

All of the numbers are close enough for me. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a factor or 5 different or something like that.Daryl
