Monitored Thermal Performance of ICF Walls in MURBs
These days, builders, owners and developers of multi-unit residential buildings are on the lookout for ways to reduce the cost of construction and building energy consumption. Insulating concrete forms (ICF), which can be used in constructingb building walls, provide respectable thermal resistance, minimized thermal bridging and airtight construction, which should lead to lower heating and cooling energy consumption, increased comfort and reduced space-conditioning systems capacity requirements. This research report provides quantitative performance-monitoring data and analysis on ICF walls that highlight the benefits of this construction system.
