In addition it calculates the energy saving and reduction of CO2 emissions by applying insulation materials in buildings. The behavior of the materials was tested with an experimental procedure. The materials used were expanded polystyrene, graphite enhanced expanded polystyrene, extruded polystyrene and mineral wool. According to the results of the experiment, the tested materials have similar behavior with that of extruded polystyrene being slightly better than the rest. Extruded polystyrene has the lowest sensitivity to orientational shift, while expanded polystyrene has the greatest. After the orientation study, the materials were tested according to their application in building structures using the Thermocad TiSoft software. Energy saving in buildings is about 47% with the use of insulation materials. CO2 emissions are reduced by the same rate.
