Abstract

Energy conservation can be done by reducing the amount of energy loss. Houses in the high altitude regions can be built using this principal. Using insulation tiles in the walls can reduce the amount of heat loss from the room. The cold weather in the high altitude regions demands high amount of energy for room heating. If the buildings were poorly insulated, a great deal of heat will escape aggravating already poor supply of energy. In order to reduce the amount of energy wastage, there is a need to insulate the buildings properly. The insulation tile made up of locally available material like white soil (Kamero), cow dung and waste product like paper, plastic, wooden grain were tested in Thermo-Box. Their thermal conductivity and transmittance were measured and a comparison was done. This paper mainly deals the thermal efficiency of insulation tiles and its efficacy on reducing greenhouse gas emission.
