Analysis on Regional Adaptability of Interior Thermal Insulation System in South China


Article Preview

For seeking out suitable means of thermal insulation system of building envelope in south China, this paper has conducted simulation analysis on respective energy consumption of the typical residential template in cold region and south China, when adopt exterior thermal insulation system or interior thermal insulation system. The study has shown that the exterior thermal insulation system is much better than the interior thermal insulation system in energy efficiency in the cold region, but there isn’t obvious difference between them in south China. And from the aspects of the climate’s influence on the insulation quality, the installation’s influence on the building facades and the construction practices, it is proved that the interior thermal insulation system is more suitable than the exterior thermal insulation system in south China.
