Is an ICF built house going to work for me?
I have posted various times about the house I plan to build and heat with mini splits in a cold climate,Peterborough Ontario.All of my decisions are based on 2by 6 construction with roxul or blown cellulose and 4 inches of foam on the exterior .It is a slab on grade with 2 inches of foam under the slab .I will also go r50 in the attic ....this presumably will give me sufficient insulation to heat with a mini split on each floor as we do get a few days at -25c .I do have a propane back up source of heat ....here is my question .If we decide to build ICF ,is there enough insulation value to heat this way ....or how do I get enough insulation ? thanks in advance ...Bob
