High R-Value Enclosure Assemblies

BSC has undertaken a study for the US DOE's Building America research program to identify and evaluate residential enclosure assemblies that cost effectively provide 50 percent improvement in thermal resistance. Details regarding water management, air management, vapor management and thermal management are described in the following sheets. Look for future wall, foundation and roof case studies.
