As architects and contractors look for ways to develop energy-efficient buildings, Premier SIPS by Insulfoam offer an engaging infographic on how to achieve more airtight, well-insulated structures. The "Be a Zero Hero" infographic (see below) highlights how structural insulated panel construction is 15 times more air tight and offers 47% greater insulation performance than traditional stick framing.

"One thing that surprises many people we speak with, is how affordable net-zero energy construction can be," said Joe Pasma, technical director for Premier SIPS. "The methods exist today and are often straightforward and cost effective, whether for homes, apartments, schools or other institutional and commercial buildings. We wanted to create an easy-to-share graphic that inspires and educates building professionals on uses of available technologies for reducing heating and cooling costs."
