Abstract

In this study, two types of insulation materials with different heat transfer coefficients were compared in a building energy performance.
Within this comparison, changes in the thermal performance of the building have been examined. The conductive heat transfer coefficient of
the polyurethane foam material is 0.02094 W/m.K and the commercial one is 0.035 W/m.K. Within the scope of the analysis, depending on
the building material, the thickness of the insulation material was changed at certain rates for both cases. With the aid of EES (Engineering
Equations Solver) program, changes in the total energy and fuel costs have been observed. In addition, the analyzes were carried out for Ankara
region having continental climate. A sample building with the same dimensions was taken as a reference in the analysis for both cases. As a
result of the analyzes, it has been observed that PMS added polyurethane foam shows a better performance of about 3.86% compare to the
commercial one in terms of energy saving.
