Insulation

October 5th, 2015

A building industry trade association has some bad news for homeowners looking to stay warm and toasty this winter: Roughly 90% of existing U.S. homes don’t have enough insulation.

Based on new research, the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA) says these underinsulated homes waste energy and money and sacrifice owners’ comfort. This estimate is derived from information in the 2009 Residential Energy Consumption Survey, using methods to estimate insulation levels developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and applied by Boston University researchers as part of a study supported by NAIMA into the energy savings and emissions reductions possible with increased insulation levels in U.S. homes.

All Trustway Homes come with R-21 in the exterior walls and R-50 blown-in insulation in the attic.   These are the top levels for insulation and another reason why building with Trustway Homes is for those who value excellence.
