This example illustrates the computation of LCC and NS measures to determine the optimal R-value of attic insulation to be installed in a new ... Note that the optimal R-value for any given building is determined by a number of factors, including climate, fuel prices, the efficiency and operating ... R-38 has the lowest LCC ($11, 300) and the highest Net Savings ($3, 741) in this example. ... method for solving the optimal-efficiency problem is that you do not have to identify a base case.
