Energy consumption in building accounts for 30 percent of all the energy consumption of external envelope takes an important part. But in China, because of the insufficiency in thermal behaviour of building external envelope, indoor average heating temperature is low, while heating energy consumption per unit area is 2-3 times as much as that in developed countries under the same climate condition. In this paper, according to measurement and analysis on some kinds of walls, windows and roofs, the detail methods in energy saving of these structures are described. In addition, some comparisons among energy saving efficiency of popular external envelope are a systemic engineering. ~If the specification of the building insulation can be higher, the overall energy saving efficiency is higher too.
