Insulation serves as a barrier to heat transfer and is therefore crucial for keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer months. A well-insulated and well-designed home delivers year-round comfort while reducing cooling and heating expenditures by as much as 50%, depending on the climate. It follows that greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced as a result. The R-value of the products available can be used to compare the insulating properties of the many options available. The R-value is a measurement of heat flow resistance. When it comes to insulation, the higher the R-value, the greater the level of protection. The strategy for arranging insulating layers in its application influences the rate of heat transfer as well. The value of heat flow/heat transfer rate can be used to determine how much energy is propagated down the insulating wall and how quickly it does so. By using the ANSYS software and the Steady State analysis approach, this study seeks to provide an overview of how much influence the configuration system for installing an insulating wall layer. From the results of the simulation, it can be concluded that the heat transfer rate is lower when the insulating layer installation systems are placed in series than when they are attached in parallel.
