Wall insulation appeal

You can use this form to appeal the wall insulation check.

Before you begin

Before you sell a home that was built before 1980, the City typically performs an energy audit.

During an energy audit, an inspector:

  • Drills a two-inch hole in an an exterior facing wall, typically in a closet.
  • Finds out how much insulation is in the walls. 
  • Seals the hole with a plastic cap after finishing the inspection.
