manufacturers (Sheppard, 2012). In recent experiments, it is proven that the thickness of an insulation does affect the annual cooling and heating energy (Pan, Dongmei, Chan, Deng, and Lin, 2012). This was tested in four different climate zones, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing. The results were that the increase in insulation thickness increased energy saving, especially Beijing because of the heating energy use in the region (Pan, Dongmei, Chan, Deng, and Lin, 2012). For the Guangzhou and Shanghai regions, the thickness of insulation did not affect the sum of the heating and cooling …show more content…
