The North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA) recently produced an instructional 3-part video series along with pictorial guides to assist insulation contractors, home energy raters and home insulation installers in meeting RESNET Grade I criteria with fiber glass and rock and slag wool batt insulation.
Proper installation methods are key to any insulation receiving a RESNET Grade I rating — the highest level of insulation installation. The new video series and pictorial guide materials provide in-depth coverage on how to insulate all the areas of a home with fiber glass and rock and slag wool batt insulation and demonstrate installation techniques for even the most complex areas.
Brian Coble, Director of High Performance Homes for Advanced Energy walks viewers through an ENERGY STAR Home and points out every area of a home that must be insulated to meet RESNET Grade 1 Insulation Installation Requirements. Meeting specific energy efficiency criteria with fiber glass, rock wool and slag wool batt insulation can be easily achieved if the insulation and air sealing package is installed with professionalism and care.
