Free Webinar on Why Proper Insulation Installation Matters

Presented by the Insulation Institute

Using a three-grade approach developed by RESNET, HERS raters are trained to assess the quality of insulation installation. Grade I is the best, while Grade III the worst.

In order to properly rate the quality of the installation of insulation HERS raters must thoroughly understand between the different grades of the quality of the installation of the insulation.

According to the Insulation Institute, a project of NAIMA (North American Insulation Manufacturers
Association), not meeting the Grade I criteria is commonplace. In fact, in a recent field survey, the US Department of Energy found only about half of all homes had Grade I quality. The bottom line is, even if a builder’s contract with the insulation installer says that the product will be installed “per manufacturer specifications”, this is too often not happening.

How does this impact the HERS rating? Join us for this free webinar, “Why Proper Insulation Installation Matters” presented by Jordan Doria of NAIMA.

In the webinar you will learn:

  • The business case for why insulation installation matters
  • The effects that not achieving Grade I installation have on a home’s HERS Index score
  • The costs of different insulation installation approaches
  • Access the “Quality Management” checklist to help builders, raters and insulation contractors collaborate to deliver proper, Grade I installations
