The article examines the effect of thermal insulation from autoclaved aerated concrete on the energy characteristics of a single-family house. Analysis of mathematical models of energy characteristics of external enclosing structures of buildings depending on the thickness of AEROC autoclaved concrete products according to the criteria of heat loss shows that the thermal resistance value of 7.11 m2K/W and the heat transfer coefficient of 0.141 W/(m2K) are achieved using the wall block AEROC D 300 and AEROC Energy thermal insulation panel with a thickness of 200 mm. These indicators correspond to the passive house standard for thermal resistance (Ro ≥ 6.7 m2K/W) and heat transfer coefficient (Uo ≤ 0.15 W/m2K) of external walls, which confirms the feasibility of using AEROC Energy D 150 thermal insulation panels in combination with wall blocks AEROC D 300 for housing construction according to passive construction standards.
