Abstract

The energy efficiency calculations of several types of AAC-based building envelopes are presented in this paper. As boundary conditions, four different climates of Czech cities are chosen. The calculations are accomplished using Künzel’s mathematical model of coupled heat and moisture transport implemented into computer simulation tool HEMOT. The main objective of this paper is to choose the best insulating material in order to reach maximal energy savings. Keywords: AAC, energy efficiency, heat and moisture transport, computational simulation.
