Remarkable Energy Savings
How much energy will my new home require to maintain a warm and comfortable environment year-round?
Obviously a lot less with Formance, but wouldn't it be nice to know just how much less?
We asked energy professional Denise Martin to dynamically assess a standard plan built using the Formance system and compare that with the same plan but this time built using traditional framing. Denise uses advanced energy assessment software which thermally models the design and predicts the energy requirements. The house is an actual project located in Canterbury.
The result was astounding.
By replacing the timber-framed walls and roof with a Formance wall and ceiling package, and adding thermally broken windows and slab the annual heating and cooling energy requirements for the home was 1/4 of the same house built to the minimum standard of insulation required by the New Zealand Building Code.
Here is the house that was assessed.
