Clarum has used Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) in many of its homes to create high-performance building envelopes. With SIPs, it is much easier to reduce air leaks than with stick framing, since the panels are produced in a controlled setting and arrive at the jobsite in large, ready-to-install sections. The panels also have continuous insulation across their height, width and depth, along with fewer thermal bridges. The result is up to a 60 percent reduction in heating and cooling costs, plus healthier indoor air from sealing out dust, pollen and other irritants.
