build with Insulated Concrete Forms? Insulated Concrete Form walls
provide a continuous layer of insulation, keeping the temperature
the same everywhere. It virtually eliminates the 'cold spots' that
can occur in frame walls along the studs or at gaps in the insulation.
Homes built with ICF's are extremely airtight. The contiuous foam
shell filled with concrete makes air infiltration almost impossible.
Test prove that ICF homes had up to one-third to one-half as much
air infiltration as the typical frame house. Heavy concrete in
the ICF wall gives it the heat-absorbing property of 'thermal mass'.
This allows for constant temperatures during heating and cooling
cycles. ICF homes are also very quiet, you may see traffic outside
your window, but you would not hear it. So you ask, Why build with
Insulated Concrete Forms? We say, Why Not!! Insulated Concrete
form homes are quiet, comfortable, and provide even temperatures,
protecting your family against the harshness of the outdoors.
