Abstract: This study was focused on the simulation of energyperformance for residential buildings incorporating different types ofinsulation materials. The energy consumption of residential buildings in the U.S.plays a significant role in the total annual energy consumption, and usinginsulation materials of higher performances is one of the most effective waysto reduce the building energy consumption. In this study, the building energy simulation wasperformed in BEopt for a typicalresidential house in the U.S. with several different types of insulationmaterials. The results show that adding insulation materials can significantlyimprove the building energy performance.The polyisocyanurate performed the best among the conventional insulationmaterials and had an annualized source energy saving of 37 in Pittsburgh.Vacuum-Insulated Panels had the best performance among all types of materialsdiscussed in this study and showed annualized sourceenergy of 41 in Pittsburgh. Phase Change Material was found to be the mosteffective way to particularly reduce the coolingenergy use.
