Residential and commercial buildings consume a considerable amount of the energy produced in Turkey. 82% of that consumed energy is heating related. A reduction to 25% to 50% of energy consumption is possible with only proper insulation of these buildings. Fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum produce CO2. Tests have shown that CO2 levels have reached 360 ppm in Turkey. In this context; buildings that are efficiently designed and configured will provide energy savings. Energy efficiency in buildings in Turkey; has gained prominence recently with the adoption of the Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings in 2008. The object of this study is to convert a building; located in the 3rd climatic region in Turkey; to an energy efficient one. Analysis of the building has revealed that it does not accommodate the TS 825 standards. New thermal insulation design has cut energy consumption estimates to 37;09 kWh/m3; which is within the limits of regulation codes.
