Abstract

As quality of life has become a center of attention internationally, studies on comfortable indoor environments have been actively conducted. Particularly, the number of patients suffering from indoor air quality related diseases such as atopic dermatitis and new house syndrome have increased and the average time spent indoors these days is more than half a day, so counter solutions have been attempted in the field of architecture, such as using eco-friendly and ecological materials. With this background, this research aimed to verify the effect of rice hull insulation on the indoor environment, which is widely used in rural areas. To do this, two real-scale mock-ups with rice hull insulation and polystyrene insulated panels, which is the construction generally used in rural areas, were constructed and analyzed, and the effect of rice hull insulation on an indoor environment was verified.
