Study of efficient home insulation


With the increasing price of energy, an energy efficient home can save us thousands of dollars in energy cost each year. In hot summer days, insulation must prevent the heat from entering the home. In winters the heat must enter and remain inside the home. All these are possible by an efficient design and insulation.

 Project description
In this project you focus on studying insulation material and perform experiments to compare the efficiency of different material. You may also compare the efficiency of one specific insulator in different temperatures, different thickness, different densities or any other possible variables that may affect the efficiency of an insulator.
