Save on Energy
-Hempcrete is a dual method insulator. It has an R value of 2 per inch and a high thermal mass that makes this material extremely efficient. Thermal mass stores heat and cold for long periods of time and releases it slowly.
-Hempcrete is installed as a monolithic wall and eliminates normal thermal bridging where you lose a lot of energy.-Compared to a basic built home you can expect to save 30-60 percent on energy bills.
Through the standard ASTM E84 test hempitecture has proven that not only is hempcrete fire resistant but it is in fact fireproof
Fire Rating on a scale of 0-450 this material rated 0
