Thermohouse System – The Energy Efficient Eco Home
What is the Thermohouse System?
- Insulating Concrete Formwork – ICF Walls
- Energy efficient floor system
- Energy efficient roof system
- Energy efficient ground floor insulation
We use reinforced concrete and EPS insulation in our homes. The combined properties of these materials results in strong and efficient structures with a reduced impact on the environment and on your energy bills.
Better still is that these homes can be built quickly and easily!
Sustainability at Our Core
Thermohouse – The complete energy efficient building system
What is EPS?
Excellent long-term performance
- Low thermal conductivity –0.030W/mK
- Low moisture content
- Mechanical strength (to offset user wear & tear throughout life span of building)
- Resistance to rot, mould & decay
- Resistance to rodent decay
Tremendous potential for energy payback
EPS uses less than 0.1% of global oil as a feedstock, allowing it to save up to 200 times its own resource in thermal energy savings.
In the case of thermal renovation of a house with EPS insulation, the total primary energy for production of the EPS used is saved in just 2 to 4 months!
For commercial construction, EPS applications get the highest possible A-plus summary rating in the BRE Global Green Guide to specification. In addition to the A-plus summary rating, EPS gains ‘A’ ratings across the majority of the critical environmental performance matrices including:
|Environmental Impact Category||Rating|
|Stratospheric Ozone Depletion||A+|
|Fossil Fuel Depletion||A|
Expanded Polystyrene Bead
How is a Thermohouse Constructed?
The full system forms a monolithic concrete structure, fully wrapped in insulation, which is extremely airtight and free from any cold bridging.
These eco buildings can be designed and finished to any desired aesthetic. Curved or rectangular, timber cladding or brick – Whatever you imagine your dream home to be, with Thermohouse it is achievable.
