ABSTRACT

The article aims to determine how effective the stricter current requirements for the building walls and windows insulation are from the economic energy savings perspective. The article deals with a mathematical method for economic assessment of optimal building walls and windows thermal insulation. The mathematical methods used in this article are based on cost-benefit analysis. Recent research shows that the stricter requirements for the building walls and windows thermo-insulation may not always give the best economic result.

Keywords: construction, modernization, energy, thermal insulation, cost-benefit analysis
