  • Insulation in the Home
    • Cavity Wall Insulation
      • Double layer bricks with cavity in between
        • Heat travels from the warmer inner wall to the colder wall by convection and radiation so some heat is lost to outside (Same as double glazing)
    • Loft Insulation
      • reduces all three heat transfers
    • Hot Water Tank Jacket and Pipe Lagging
      • Shiny inner surface reflects radiation back into tank
