Insulation in construction is mainly used for thermal purposes, although can also refer to acoustic, fire and impact (commercial) applications. Insulation can be specified for its ability to perform several on these function for a building. Insulation is generally used to prevent heat loss, this impacts the energy efficiency of a building given the more heat retained helps reduce the energy demands of the system used. Regional climates can affect how much installation a building will require, with building codes only specifying the bare minimum. In the UK energy performance certificates have become popular for house purchases, these certificates take note of insulation and provided an energy efficiently rating based on insulation amongst other factors.
