ICD-10:

Description:

A building without sufficient insulation will lose a large amount of heat during the winter. The amount of supplemental insulation required can be calculated if certain parameters are known. The effective R-value for insulation under environmental conditions of wind and moisture may be less than the R-value for insulation calculated under ideal conditions, so additional insulation may be needed.
