EPI Study: Assessment of the Costs and Thermal Performance of Construction Materials

Energy efficient buildings are designed to provide comfortable temperatures inside throughout the year, with minimal energy consumption and without expensive power supply systems.

This study evaluates heat insulation materials in Georgia, from quality, efficiency, and cost perspectives, to enable consumers and the construction sector to make informed decisions on alternative construction methods to the traditional concrete blocks.

According to the results, building insulation has a number of positive impacts aside from increased energy efficiency (up to 50%). These include obtaining additional space and reducing the quantity of materials required as a result of decreasing the weight of the building. Taking these factors into account, insulating buildings can be profitable.
