Thermal Insulation of Energy Efficient Buildings

Thermal insulation is the easiest and most effective energy efficient technologies available today. Thermal insulating materials commonly used are flexible (mineral wool, glass fibre), loose fill, and spray. Using these materials insulation techniques like stud walls with standard sheathing and cladding, stud walls with exterior thermal sheathing and foundations like concrete foundation with exterior insulation, permanent wood foundation renders good amount of efficient thermal insulation. But with the use of GRP, ACC and some insulating paints thermal insulation can be increased to an optimum level. This paper includes the case study of residential complex at Thatipur, Gwalior in which composite technique has been introduced.
