Health And Energy Efficiency
The humidity in the air causes all kinds of health problems. It aggravates our allergies and the only way to reduce those high humidity levels and keep the air in our home as clean and dry as possible is by running the air conditioning. Unfortunately, that is not the only thing that is running. Our energy bill is as well; it is running up at high speed.
We wouldn't have that problem if our abode was built with Insulated concrete forms, or ICF as they are also called. The advantages of this material are numerous. Besides energy efficiency which aids in the prevention of the growth of fungi and mold, ICF is also insulating, impact resistant, sound, fire, and termite proof.
If going green and saving the environment is high on your agenda then ICF is a must. The material is made out of cement, water, and left over, clean, un-used softwood lumber which would otherwise have ended up in the garbage.
In combination with the other already mentioned energy saving qualities, Mother Nature, our health, and our wallet would be ecstatic!
