1/4 of the cooling and heating costs than Next-Generation Energy Saving Standard. *1

The Q value is a measure of heat loss from a house. The lower the Q value, the higher the comfort and energy efficiency. i-cube surpasses the Next-Generation Energy Saving Standard and realizes large savings in cooling and heating costs as well as CO2 emissions.
