What It's About:
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:
- Why you should air seal first, then insulate
- How to achieve a top HERS score
- Installation of fiberglass, mineral wool and BIBS (blown in blanket system) along with the importance of manufacturer’s instructions
- How to fill cavities, eliminate gaps and avoid compression and detail carefully around wires, pipes and ducts
