What are the advantages of ICF?
We have discussed how building with ICF will provide you with a warmer and healthier home. Now let’s see how building an ICF home will provide you with a more energy-efficient home.
Energy-Efficiency, No Matter the Weather
Whether we are referring to the warmer or colder months of the year, you will be able to benefit greatly from having a home built with ICF blocks.
During the colder months of the year, the extra insulation provided with insulated concrete forms (ICF) will prevent heat from leaving your home, thus allowing you to maintain the temperature in your home that your thermostat is set at. The double layer of EPS insulation from the ICF will also help prevent frost from accumulating on your walls, which also aids in heat retention in your home.
During the warmer months of the year, as the outside temperature rises, you may also want to keep your home cooler. With ICF construction, the EPS insulation will once again maintain the temperature inside your home that you choose. This will help keep your home cooler on those hot summer days!
The combination of these ICF advantages creates an energy efficient home. Instead of losing heat in winter and wasting air conditioning in the summer, you can easily control the temperature within your home to make everyone feel more comfortable year-round.
Sounds like a win-win to me!
