This week, the the U.S. House of Representatives passed Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s (R-IL) Thermal Insulation Efficiency Improvement Act (H.R. 4801), bipartisan legislation that directs the Department of Energy to study the potential savings created by using thermal insulation for energy and water systems in federal buildings. Rep. Kinzinger said:
“I’m proud to see the House investing in research that could significantly save both financial and natural resources all across the country. With the federal government being the single largest consumer of energy in the U.S., doing our best to maximize the potential savings from improved insulation systems is a commonsense step I think everybody can agree on. I hope the Senate takes up this bill and moves quickly to begin this important analysis.”
The legislation is supported by coalition of 19 leading plumbing and mechanical industry organizations.
