This paper applies the consumption model developed in Scott1 to a further set of data. The findings cast fresh light on the relationship between insulation and energy consumption in houses, the main finding being that once houses have been insulated to a certain standard, further insulation does not significantly affect energy consumption. Estimates of income elasticity and the effect of household size are also presented. © 1982.
