Abstract

This paper investigates the level of insulation a house should have before it is economic to install an active solar heating system: given the amount of money to spend on reducing the fossil fuel demand for heat for a conventional house, what proportion should be invested in improving the insulation, and what proportion in installing an active solar system? This paper not only examines the benefits of insulation and solar heating for new houses, but also for existing houses. The latter will form the majority of our housing stock over the next 50 years. Note that this paper classifies passive solar measures as an insulating measure.
