|Zero Energy Home - PILOT PROJECT|
Conclusions/Peak Performance Sample Home Unit
Based on analysis
and initial energy modeling of the envelope, the optimal approach was
Spray Foam Insulation between rafters and wall studs (achieving the added benefit of low
air infiltration and envelope sealing qualities) with ¾” (R-5) rigid foam wall sheathing board .
Energy conservation performance estimated at 47% to 55% better than homes
constructed under standard building code requirements.
