Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I save on my energy bills with a concrete home?

  • Concrete homes save energy in two ways.  The mass of concrete slows down the passage of heat or cold moving through the wall.  With the same insulation, a concrete home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.  Also, concrete walls are more air-tight than wood-frame walls.  Since leaks account for a large percentage of energy loss in the home, concrete homes enjoy savings in energy consumption.  That adds up to lower utility bills. 
  • A survey conducted by Dr. Pieter VanderWerf at Boston University, found that using insulating concrete forms reduces energy used for heating by about 44% and for cooling by about 32%.

Is the Air cleaner and fresher in a Concrete Home?

  • Insulating Concrete Form homes provide a healthier indoor environment.  Because the solid concrete wall acts as a continuous barrier against air infiltration, the interior environment of an insulating concrete form home has a greatly reduced level of airborne dust and allergens when a fresh air exchanger and humidifier are used.  You and your family will breathe easier if you suffer from allergies.  In addition, nothing held within or ordinarily emitted by an insulating concrete form wall is toxic.  In fact, the measurement of the air content within insulating concrete form homes shows an almost complete absence of any emission.
