Enhancing Energy Models using Detail Elements / Envelope Thermal Properties

This video demonstrates a workflow for improving the accuracy of your energy and performance analysis by customizing the thermal properties of the building envelope surfaces (walls, roofs, floors) in your Revit project model.

In Revit, you can customize the thermal properties of the wall, window, floor, and roof constructions to accurately reflect the materials that you would like to use in your design. These detailed properties can be exported in your energy model to be used as the As-Modeled Values in Insight by enabling the Detailed Element checkbox in the Advanced Energy Settings.

Using these detailed element thermal properties produces a more accurate energy model rather than simply relying on the Conceptual or Schematic Types.
