What is the u value?
I thought it was the rate of heat transfer through a material but apparently it's wrong

U-values show how fast heat can transfer through a material and also heat transfers through materials with higher u values than through materials with low u values. The lower the u- value the better the insulator. Im pretty sure you are correct just added the important part

Show's the rate of heat transfer. The lower the U-Value, the better an insulator a material is (or the poorer the conductor) it is.
