High-performance homes are now required by model codes (2012 IECC) and promoted by voluntary standards, such as the Naitonal Green Building Standard (NGBS) and Energy Star, yet market penetration for energy-efficient walls with an R-value of 19+ is still less than 20% of all new homes. This session will present best practices for building walls that are energy efficient, durable, cost-optimized and can be implemented easily in the field. It will highlight the pros and cons of various options and enable builders to make informed design and material selections. Get all the latest information based on the Construction Guide to High Performance Walls (which will be published/available for download in January 2015), developed with input from a range of experts across the industry to help achieve better efficiencies and standardization in the way residential walls are constructed.
