LP TechShield Works to Make Energy Efficiency a Priority Among Homeowners

The federal Department of Energy and the Tennessee Association of Realtors are partnering to help homeowners improve their energy efficiency, and LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing is contributing to the conversation in a meaningful way.

The program makes energy information more available to anyone buying a house and expands on existing upgrade options. The same way a car allows miles-per-gallon (MPG) information, the homeowner will have better readings of the home’s efficiency before purchasing.

The partnership aims to allow all homes, both new and old, access to the features needed to lower monthly energy costs while benefitting the environment.  Many participating builders, like Goodall Homes and Regent Homes, are turning to LP TechShield to provide the added energy-saving feature in these eco-conscious homes. 

LP TechShield works to lower a home’s attic temperature by up to 30 degrees, decreasing monthly cooling costs. It is the product of an innovative manufacturing process that distinguishes it from traditional sheathing materials by using a patented VaporVents™ technology. LP TechShield has been installed in 1.5 million homes in the United States.
