Insulation refers broadly to any object in a building used as insulation for any purpose. While the majority of insulation in buildings is for thermal purposes. However, the term also applies to acoustic insulation, fire insulation, and impact insulation.Most often an insulation material will be chosen for its ability to perform several of these functions at once.Thermal insulation in buildings is an important factor to achieving thermal comfort for its occupants. This reduces unwanted heat loss or gain and can decrease the energy demands of heating and cooling systems. How much insulation a house should have depends on building design, climate, energy costs, budget, and personal preference. Regional climates make for different requirements. Building codes specify only the bare minimum; insulating beyond what the code requires is often recommended.It is important to choose an appropriate design, the correct combination of materials and building techniques to suit the particular situation.
