A building with a SIP envelope will be nearly 30% more energy-efficient than a conventionally stick built building. That’s because of better, more effective insulation and measurably lower air leakage through the enclosure. These two factors, superior insulation and superior air tightness, are the reason that SIP envelopes are recognized by Natural Resources Canada (NRC) for their high performance. NRC is also the agency that’s sets the standards for building codes and changes are scheduled for the next two years depending on which province you live.. Proposed changes are to increase insulation requirements and reduce air leakage. You guessed it SIPs as they are presently will meet the proposed changes. That means that if you build with SIPs today your building will retain still retain its same value after the building codes change and you get to save on energy costs for the life of the building.
