  • Insulation In Construction Essay

    In simple environmental terms, it would appear that the more insulation you can have, the better. More insulation means less energy use over the lifetime of the building, which means less resource depletion and less global warming. However, insulation costs money and we have a finite budget. Even if it is cost-effective to increase insulation levels, could this money be even more effectively spent on upgrading the windows, or the draft-proofing, or the energy systems? Also, (with some exceptions) insulation is not a structural material; we need thicker walls to contain thicker insulation. These walls cost more money, contain more materials and are more expensive to build. How do these factors feed into the equation?
