By measuring the actual energy loss in two identical homes - one built with sips and the other built with conventional stud and batt walls - Dr. Tony Shaw came to a number of revealing conclusions:
Side-by-Side Study Proves SIPs Advantage
Brock University Study Quantifies Superior Thermal Performance of SIPs
1. The 2x6 wall stud wall had 68% more air leakage than the Structural Insulated Panel wall.
2. The R-19 fiberglass insulation performed at an equivalent R-4 When the outdoor temperature was -10.5'C (13.1F)
3. The 4" SIP wall house with R-17 EPS insulation maintained its true R-value throughout the duration of the 1 year study.
4. The R-17 EPS SIP wall house used 33% less energy than the R-19 Fiberglass wall house.
