ICFS - ENERGY EFFICIENT CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS
The combination of rising energy requirements and rising fuel costs, mean that we need to make the most of building technology to heat and cool our homes. This requires a whole-building approach to design, which doesn’t have to be complicated. NUDURA Insulated concrete forms are energy-efficient construction materials that provide maximum comfort and energy solutions for your entire home. NUDURA energy-efficient construction materials provide up to 58% energy savings compared to traditional building methods using wood.
LEED® FOR HOMES
LEED for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes using energy-efficient construction materials. A green home uses less energy, water, and natural resources; creates less waste, and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants. Benefits of a LEED home include lower energy and water bills; reduced greenhouse gas emissions; and less exposure to mold, mildew, and other indoor toxins. The net cost of owning a LEED home is comparable to that of owning a conventional home.
If you are thinking about building to LEED Standard, NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms can contribute greatly to a high level of LEED Points.
