Résumé
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the integration of superinsulation principles into manufactured housing in hot, arid climates, in developing a passively heated and cooled mobile home unit. When a potential hot, arid climate application of superinsulation was analyzed, it was determined that modifications in the mechanical ventilation schemes and addition of thermal mass would be necessary to dissipate the build-up of intrinsic heat. A thermal storage roof was used for this purpose, and the details for this roof pond system along with the superinsulated wall and floor systems were developed to respond to the construction and cost efficiency requirements of manufactured housing. The thermal performance of this system was analyzed and compared to a typical mobile home using a computer simulation tool. The energy savings from this analysis were calculated to give a payback period of five to seven years on the initial cost of the system
