EnergyComplete Thermal Insulation 2.2 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION A. General: System consists of an air infiltration barrier applied to joints between materials of the exterior and interior wall framing to eliminate air infiltration into the building and the installation of insulation to reduce thermal transmission. NOTE TO SPECIFIER: Delete materials and thicknesses not required from the following paragraphs. R values indicated below are for the insulation material alone. The expected performance of the whole wall assembly needs to be calculated taking the R value of all wall components into account. Building codes will dictate the R value performance requirements for the exterior walls. Depending on applicable building codes, climate zone where the project is located, and framing material used, additional continuous insulation on the exterior side of the framing may be required. This is particularly the case where metal studs are used for framing. Consult the applicable building codes for the project location, IECC, and ASHRAE 90.1 to determine the required thermal resistance for the exterior walls. Be sure that the desired R-values are indicated on the drawings and that insulation is not indicated by thickness alone. 2.3 MATERIALS A.
