Extreme Energy Savings

Structural Insulated Panels, Sips, SIPs homes, Midwest green building, SIPs manufacturer Building with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) from Extreme Panel Technologies is the ultimate way to build green - regularly saving owners 50-60% on heating and cooling costs. Extreme SIPs can be used as a complete building envelope (roof, walls, floors, foundation) offering the ideal platform for energy efficiency. This reduced demand for energy also translates into decreased greenhouse gases being emitted into the environment. Truly an EXTREME GREEN building system! With SIPs being around for more than 60 years, there are thousands of structures and case studies to prove the energy efficiency of these structures. Extreme has been a part of this history for over 20 years now.



Fast Green Facts:

  - SIPs are made from recyclable EPS foam and fast growing OSB species
  - SIPs create a tight building envelope, immediately reducing the amount of heat and cold that transfers through the walls of traditional buildings, offering up to 60% energy savings
  - Pre-cut SIPs packages create far less jobsite waste than traditional framing methods
  - SIPs provide large solid roofs - walls and floors have very few gaps, and fewer places that pollutants can come into a building - resulting in superior indoor air quality (IAQ) and healthier structures

This study tracks the environmental effects of both framing methods from raw material extraction through the 50-year lifetime of a single-family home (study produced by the EPS Molders Association - EPSMA).
