Is insulation overrated?
I was just wondering if anyone has ever read Insulating Modernism by Kiel Moe. The premise of the book is seemingly, as far as I can tell, a declaration that insulation is not an important aspect of green buildings… Basically the antithesis of everything mainstream building science advocates (to my knowledge at least), but it appears to be gaining traction in some circles, the author was even featured on the Building Science Podcast lately though this book wasn’t the main subject of discussion.
Do the arguments put forward in this book hold water or is it pseudo-science? I’m anxious to hear other opinions!
