What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZ

Fiberglass, mineral wool, cellulose and spray foam will all resist heat flow and keep your house warmer (or cooler), if they’re installed properly. But when in a rush to get things done, details are often overlooked, resulting in lower HERS scores and higher energy bills. Our experts will demonstrate how to achieve a top insulation score from your energy rater—a level 1 cavity installation.

What You’ll See and Learn:

  • How to achieve a top HERS score
