AbstractThe annual building heating/energy requirement is a function of the thermal resistance of the building enclosure and, to a lesser extent, of the mass of the building envelope. In this Note relations that can be used to estimate the "trade- off" between the mass and the thermal resistance of the building enclosure are presented in graphical form. These relations define the permitted allowances for mass in terms of reduction in thermal resistance as given in the proposed Canadian Code for Energy Conservation in New Buildings.
