ICF homes have a strong reputation for maintaining an even temperature. The reason for this is because of a phenomenon called thermal mass. Thermal mass can be best described as "having the ability to retain heat and give heat when necessary". In ICF homes, temperatures vary from floor to ceiling 1-2 degrees F. In traditional framed homes, variances are 5-10 degrees. Because of the evenness in indoor climate, ICF homes have no drafts or hotspots. Medium Sized Picture
There is little to no air infiltration within these homes, resulting in a substantial decrease in dust, bugs, pollen and disease in general. Because of an ICF home is so airtight, an air exchange system is required. These systems can filter and regulate heat and humidity more efficiently than traditional systems.
