Thermal Performance of an Earthblock Home

Colorado Earth will present the findings of a study carried out on CEB home in Castle Rock, Colorado. Sensors were placed in the wall during construction and data has been collected for over two years. The results will show how the walls perform with regards to heat transfer.

Relevance: Working to reduce our carbon footprint through high performance building envelopes.

The event is finished.
