What Is a Thermal Envelope?

Your home’s thermal envelope is comprised of everything protecting its interior from the climate outdoors. Essentially, the thermal envelope is what helps keep your home both comfortable and energy efficient.

The building envelope, which includes the walls, windows, roof, and foundation, forms the primary thermal barrier between the interior and exterior environments. With envelope technologies accounting for approximately 30% of the primary energy consumed in residential and commercial buildings, it plays a key role in determining levels of comfort, natural lighting, ventilation, and how much energy is required to heat and cool a building.
