Insulated Concrete Forms - Energy Performance and R-Values

ICF walls roofs are an effective air (and vapour) barrier because the concrete is solid without passages for air to leak, thus eliminating a major percentage of air infiltration. ICF buildings consistently get results of 0.5 to 2.5 ACH 50 and less , largely depending on the installed roof type and sealing.

Issues with Insulataed Concrete Forms (ICF)

ICFs (insulated concrete forms) do provide an insulated break, on both sides of the concrete, so they are generally going to perform better than solid masonry in temperature extremes. Hollow core masonry will slow the transfer of heat some, but since there are usually thermal bridges of solid masonry in these wall systems, the pockets of voids ...
