Federal Trade Commission

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) home insulation regulation (16 CFR Part 460) requires the seller of a new home to provide information on the type, thickness, and R-value of the insulation that will be installed in each part of the house in every sales con­tract. Commonly known as the R-Value Rule, it is intended to elim­inate dishonest or misleading insulation marketing claims and to ensure publication of accurate R-value and coverage data.
