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.

To appeal the wall insulation check

  • Complete the wall insulation appeal form.
  • Include supporting documents, if you have them, to help explain your appeal.
  • Be as specific as you can.
  • Submit the completed form by email or mail. Contact us with questions.
