In this paper we evaluated the applicability of the widely-used passive design strategy i.e., insulation, in three typical climate zones of China. Software IES VE was used for modelling and simulation of performance of insulation in a residential house. The practical behavior patterns of Chinese family from survey were utilized for analyzing the thermal characteristics of the house. Four parameters of the results were selected for analyzing the performance of insulation in three cities of China. The conditions varying in time periods and locations were compared on the basis of the simulation.
