In looking at many of your excellent suggestions from my last post-"energy effeciency", I did speak with an energy advisor and he speaks very highly of ICF (insulated concrete) in making a home more effecient.
I would like to know what you think of the ICF- especifically Reward wall.
I understand that is more costly upfront however it provides R30+ from basment foundation to the roof. It can also stand 200MPH winds-in case of tornado....
Have you delt with this or have this in your home?
He explained to me that using ICF and a high effeciency furnace using heat/air exchangers would be much better choice economically than a 6ton geothermal unit. Use the savings from the geothermal unit and put it into the ICF. He also said the savings are over 60% in energy bills per month.
Any thoughts on this one?
thanks again you have been extremely helpful.
