A large number of combinations of Irish wall types, insulation materials, and heating fuel types were produced to compare the multiple variables which influence Optimal Insulation Thickness values. The total cost (TC) and carbon emission (CE) at optimum insulation thickness (OIT) for all combinations of insulation material and three types of fuel are considered. The dataset presents OIT for solid wall, cavity wall and cavity block wall types located in Monaghan, Dublin, and Kerry.

The detailed methodology can be found in Chapter 3 of PhD Thesis 'Optimising Retrofitted Insulation for Irish Residential Building Walls' by Rakshit Muddu, Civil & Structural Engineering, TU Dublin, 2023. 3 wall types, 3 heating fuel types, 3 regions and 3 insulation material combinations were compared to identify optimal insulation thickness based on lowest upfront material based cost and operational energy cost/ emissions savings.
