Abstract: Paper presents cooling load comparison of building with waterproof insulated roof section and the building with moist and conventional sections. Influence of moisture on overall thermal performance, heat gain factors and indoor air temperature of the envelop have also been dealt with. The study is based on the work done at Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Roorkee, which gives a simple alternate method to compute indoor air temperature of the envelop. It requires to compute total heat gain through all its components of the building. Net heat gain averaged over the entire surface of a building is correlated with indoor air temperature. A single storied residential building comprising two rooms and a kitchen are taken into consideration. In high humidity prevailing condition the absorbed moisture in building sections increases and as a result there is a change in thermophysical properties of the material. Therefore, thermal transfer functions and indoor environment change accordingly.
