A few weeks ago I wrote a post about floor slab perimeter insulation and our regulatory requirements. In that post I mentioned a few points to ponder.
- Insulating to 300mm below ground level is the requirement, but what about the gap between the ground and the bottom of the wall?
- Where does the wall insulation terminate?
- Is the floor insulated?
- How and where is the floor insulated?
- Where are the control layers?
To assist with your pondering over these points, check out this article from Green Building Advisor about “Getting Slab-edge Insulation Right.”
