Energy Efficient Insulation

It is recommended that buildings use insulation that is rated and certified by a Building Performance Institute (BPI) professional. Insulation must have an R-value (resistance value) that is appropriate to the climate region and high enough to ensure efficiency (~30).

Why this Matters

For My Organization

Efficient insulation reduces energy bills by preventing heated or air-conditioned air from escaping a building.

For New Orleans

Well insulated buildings help to reduce energy waste in New Orleans year-round.
