Continuous Insulation Sheathing Simplifies Energy Code Compliance

 

Typical wall assemblies offer numerous pathways for heat to exit through exterior walls. Heat lost through wall surface thermal bridging can add up to annual energy losses of 40%. Although some builders have offered energy-efficient projects as a premium feature to clients, code requirements often mandate this now

 

Many builders are looking for simple solutions to prevent thermal bridging both to satisfy the demand for more energy-efficient projects and to comply with the latest energy codes without fundamentally altering building techniques.
