The ratio between relatively low costs and high benefits gives the vision of low running costs, and hence a perfect economic efficiency. Comparison between the purchase prices and EIOS installation with the benefits, quality, and the functionality guarantee shows the whole picture on economic efficiency.
Economic efficiency is given by the ratio of costs and benefits.
When coming from EIOS, the cost of purchase not only includes the material and installation costs but also a quality guarantee. These benefits are all available for an equivalent or smaller price than other insulation and finishing systems.
Applying EIOS does not have to result in significant cost increases. It should be considered an initial saving on downsizing the design of enclosure walls and mechanical systems. Since the EIOS price per square foot (at the same thickness) is lower or similar to other insulation and finish systems, envelope walls-thickness and heating systems can be downsized (smaller boiler, reduced number of radiator elements), considering the insulation effectiveness. The lower heating/cooling needs due to a real thermal efficiency gives an overview in reducing costs in the design stage.
In regards to the reaping the benefits, it starts with the goal of eliminating condensation and providing a Moisture-Free envelope wall. This will lead to structures without mold, health problems, degradation, and a long list of other advantages. A few of the major benefits wuold be a return of investment, interior comfort without energy intake, and minimal heating/cooling bills.
The ratio of small expenditures and key benefits gives the view of a low price, therefore providing perfect economic efficiency.
When making an investment, whether in new construction, a low-rise or high-rise, a renovation, or even just improving thermal efficiency, first assesses the rate of costs and the benefits realized.
When it comes to insulations, few may know that the accepted solutions actually have two major issues:
The vapor diffusion paradigm and moisture accumulation and
The low insulation effectiveness of R-value and air-tightness weaknesses of the building.
Warm vapors cannot escape outside in a cold environment and condensate, so an intentional airflow is allowed to pass through envelope walls to dry moisture, but this airflow allows in more vapors which become water, and air/vapor barriers obstruct moisture to dry out.
The thermal conduction coefficients of insulation materials do not apply to the insulated wall, but at a smaller rate, the installing conditions and the high water/air/vapor permeability drastically reduces the thermal efficiency of the thermal barrier assembly in comparison to the insulation material as specified.
EIOS fully resolves these two principle issues and offers additional advantages that will give you the vision in setting goals that result in benefits.
One of the most important benefits of applying this new concept is the simplification of the building envelope by eliminating the vapor barrier or other classical vapor managing systems and not worrying about the air-tightness of the envelope wall's structure. The simple and ingenious way of installing the EIOS Thermosystem with continuous insulation and the use of EIOS Sealfoam to fit panel bonding provides an easy and rewarding result.
Applying the Principle of Avoiding Condensation for the benefits of a healthier home or simpler design, construction, renovation, and maintenance does not have to result in cost increases. We can give a general view of how to save with the EIOS Thermosystem by understanding the interactions between EIOS and building systems - without trade-offs, an increase in cost savings, and improved building performances.
Regarding benefits, there are reduced callbacks and warranty claims, including:
EIOS is the only proper insulation and finishing system. It is offered for lower or comparable prices than the improper solutions, putting aside the added benefits.
