A Must read if you're building a new home  


Prior to building a home, it is important to spend some time talking to the builder about the home’s energy efficiency. And definitely ask about the insulation.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) home insulation rule requires the seller of a new home to provide information on the type, thickness, and R-value of the insulation that will be installed in each part of the house in every sales contract.* To keep initial selling prices competitive, many home builders offer the legal minimum (not optimal) levels of insulation.

* If the buyer signs a sales contract before the seller knows what type of insulation will be installed, or if there is a change of contract, the seller can give the buyer a separate receipt stating the information as soon as the seller finds out.

Questions To Ask Your Builder

  • What type of insulation will be installed in the home?

  • What areas of the home will be insulated?

  • Does the insulation level meet recommended insulation levels?

Recommended Levels of Insulation
As a way to help maximize the energy efficiency of both new and existing homes, NAIMA has prepared a map showing thermal recommendations based on both the U.S. Department of Energy’s recommendations and the most recent minimum International Energy Conservation Code levels.

What Kind of Insulation Do Builders Use on Their Own Homes?
