Building Envelope Efficiency
Expanded polystyrene, or EPS, which is an integral part of all EIFS systems, is recognized for its energy efficiency and insulation benefits. The EPS Molders Association (EPSMA) has published an informative press release and brochure describing the results of an independent study verifying the energy savings as well as greenhouse gas savings when EPS is used on homes in North America. The article is available online at Earth Times Magazine's website (www.earthtimes.org) as well as other newswires. Links to the article and the EPSMA brochure are listed below.
