Insulated Concrete Forms

ICF is short fo Insulated Concrete Forms

The concrete walls of an ICF home have high thermal mass, which act as a buffer between the interior of a home and the extreme outdoor temperature 24-hours a day.

This reduces both peak and total heating and cooling loads.

The combination of high R-values, low air infiltration, and high thermal mass is believed to account for the amazing 25% to 60% energy savings of ICF versus wood or steel-framed homes.
