This Old House By: Steve White Ryan Anderson

Thermal Resistance of the House • Denoted by “R Value” • It is the ability of an object or material to resist heat transfer through it. Heat into the house (in the form of natural gas) Heat out of the house

Governing Equation • q=∆T*As/Reqv. • To find the equivalent thermal resistance of the house, solve for Reqv. • Reqv. depends on the materials used to construct the house, the dimensions of the walls and roof, the temperature difference from inside to outside the house, as well as many other factors including the size, shape and quantity of windows.

Actual House • Walls constructed of bricks and plaster in the 1950’s • Low quality single pane windows • Cost \$552 to heat from October to May

Standard R Value Home • Constructed of newer materials with an overall R value of 20 (which is typical for newly built homes) • Would cost \$31. 54 to heat the home from October to May

Application • By raising thermal resistance of a home, the cost of heating can be reduced significantly • In this instance, the heating cost could be lowered by 94. 25% by simply raising thermal resistance to standard levels
