ABSTRACT

This paper focuses on the optimal ways of insulation of a house. It also discusses places in a house that should be or should not be insulated in order to gain maximum energy effiency and to avoid problems with humidity, moisture accumulation and the like that can be caused if the insulation is installed in a wrong or improper way. It also mentions payback equation that could help assess if the investment in the insulation managed to save energy and money for the resident or not and to what extent it managed to do so.
