Case Studies provide a summary of results for each of the homes built in partnership with BSC’s Building America team. BSC creates the case studies after construction, testing and field monitoring are complete. A case study typically includes the project overview, both enclosure and mechanical designs, results of performance testing as well as the builder profile and unique project highlights.
The Hygrothermal Regions Map illustrates the eight major climate zones in North America. The climate zones are generally based on heating degree-days, average temperatures and precipitation.
