Abstract:

CONCRETE MASONRY INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR WALLS THERMALLY COUPLED TO THE HOME INTERIOR IMPROVE PERSONAL COMFORT AND AT THE SAME TIME LOWER ENERGY USAGE DURING BOTH THE SUMMER AND WINTER SEASONS. EXTERIOR WALLS MUST BE INSULATED ON THE EXTERIOR SURFACE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE INTERIOR TEMPERATURE STABILIZATION EFFECT OF SUCH MASONRY THERMAL MASS IN WALLS. A CONCRETE BLOCK SYSTEM INCORPORATING OUTSIDE INSULATION AND A LOW MAINTENANCE PROTECTIVE LAYER WOULD ELIMINATE THE PRESENT CUSTOM APPLIED EXTERIOR INSULATION SYSTEMS, AND LOWER THE COST OF BUILDING SUCH RESIDENCES, WHILE GIVING A MORE DURABLE SURFACE THAN THE PRESENTLY USED STUCCO EXTERIOR INSULATION FINISHES. DATA IS PRESENTED WHICH DEMONSTRATES THE TEMPERATURE STABILITY AND ENERGY SAVINGS OF SUCH HOMES.
