Insulating and Ventilating Structures

This chapter is not concerned with the theoretical aspects of heat loss or gain, or with heating and cooling calculations per se. This information is covered in Chapter 2 (“Heating Fundamentals”) and Chapter 4 (“Sizing Residential Heating and Air Conditioning Sys­tems”). The purpose of this chapter is to describe the various types of insulation used in construction, the methods of applying insulation, and the thermal properties of building materials.
