1 Insulating Exterior Assemblies : Batt, Blown / Spray, Board and Beyond Batt Fiberglass Mineral Wool Cotton Wool Blown, Sprayed Fiberglass Spray Foam Cellulose Wool Board Polystyrene (XPS, EPS) Polyisocyanurate Mineral Wool Cork

2 Insulating Exterior Assemblies : Batt, Blown / Spray, Board and Beyond Batt Fiberglass Mineral Wool Cotton Wool Blown, Sprayed Fiberglass Spray Foam Cellulose Wool Board Polystyrene (XPS, EPS) Polyisocyanurate Mineral Wool Cork

3 Insulating Exterior Assemblies Performance Constructability Environmental / human impacts Cost thermal, moisture, infiltration, flamability ease of installation, equipment who installs, rigidity / support flame retardants, formaldehyde fiberglass, combustion bi-products material & installation

4 Performance Thermal Soft insulation (Interior) R-value/in Average: 3-4 Loose fill fiberglass, cellulose, perlite Blown - fiberglass, cellulose Batts fiberglass, mineral wool, cotton, wool Sprayed open cell foam - icynene 3.6 Impermeable Closed cell foam urethane Rigid insulation (Exterior ) R-value/in Average: 4-6 Perlite, homosote 2.5 +/- Foam Glass 3.4 Mineral wool, fiberglass boards Cork 4.0 +/- Impermeable Foam EPS, XPS Foam Polyisocyanurate

5 Performance - Thermal Calculating Thermal Performance Old way R-value of insulation x cavity thickness R-3.5 x 5-1/2 = R (R-value of other materials offset by framing and insulation gaps) More Accurate Calculate heat transfer though the entire assembly insulation, studs, THERM plywood, drywall, etc., and you can set the spacing of your framing. 70º 60º 50º 40º 30º 20º 10º Drywall 2x6 Framing Insulation Sheathing Cladding 0º Wood 16 Metal 16 (lower with headers, top plates, straps, etc) 40º 30º 70º 60º 50º 20º 10º 0º
