The origins of the R-value Rule date back to the energy crisis of the late 1970s when skyrocketing home heating and cooling prices caused a spike in demand for quality residential insulation products, which in turn led to an increase in the number of firms manufacturing these products.
The R-value Rule, as it came to be known, was eventually implemented in the fall of 1980 and includes requirements related to product labeling and advertising.
The recent changes to the R-value Rule actually stem from a request for comments the FTC issued in 1995 as part of its ongoing regulatory review program.
