The trend toward high envelope R-value for building energy efficiency made sense because at the starting point when the trend began in 1980s and 1990s buildings were poorly insulated. The advantage of high performance envelope was based on the consideration of envelope heat transfer and building heat balance (balance between heat transfer loss and fuel heat production). However, high performance envelope...
