# Insulating Using Blown Insulation - Metric Measurements

Calculate the RSI value, the metric equivalent of the R value for blown insulation. To convert an R value to RSI divide the R value by 5.67826.

### Attic/Ceiling Insulation-Blown/Plus Cost Metric Measurements

#### The Calculation

- the length of the area
*(metres)* - the width of the area
*(metres)* - the coverage of one bag
*(cubic metres)* - RSI value based on 25.4 millimetres depth
*(settled)* - the desired RVI value
- the cost of one bag

#### Results

- the square metres of the area
- applied depth of insulation
*(the height of placing the insulation before it settles in millimetres)* - required depth of insulation
*(settled depth in millimetres)* - volume of insulation needed
*(in cubic metres)* - number of bags needed
*(# whole plus partial bags)* - cost of the material
*(based on whole bags needed)*
