Large systems that operate at high temperatures (steam systems) stand to yield the most energy savings and GHG reductions from better insulation. The modelling results also demonstrate that there is a strong case to make for adding insulation to most heating systems, with short payback periods and tangible energy reductions.
The study concludes that failing to implement mechanical insulation best practices puts building performance at risk. A comprehensive, integrated design process that considers all design options is necessary to get the best possible performance with the least investment.
