In our country, “Thermal Insulation Requirements for Buildings” was implemented to save energy in
buildings in 2000. By insulating the buildings, the required heating energy is decreased and energy saving is
provided. Determining the correct material and optimum insulation thickness are very important issues in
thermal insulation. In this study, software is developed according to TS 825 and charts which show optimum
insulation thickness for different insulation materials are drawn for 4 different regions of Turkey. Moreover,
in the study the effect of change in window and wall area to building heat energy requirement and optimum
thickness is investigated.
