Modelling Of Thin Internal Wall Insulation In Existing Dwellings With Varying Occupancy And Constructions In IES

Thomas Daniel Cooke, Ewan Jones, David Ross

Abstract: The study considered the impact of three levels of thin internal wall insulation (IWI) on the energy demand, warm up time and overheating risk of a typical semidetached house under a range of combinations of existing building constructions and occupancy patterns, in addition to two locations in the UK. The occupancy patterns selected included using standard assessment procedure methods (SAP), as well as agreed profiles to represent the patterns of a retired couple and a single working age person. This paper is based on a report produced by AECOM for the government department BEIS, formerly known as DECC.
