    Has anyone got any links to research on energy use figures directly comparing heating energy use for dry lined on dabs cf wet plastered for the same theoretical U value? or seen any?

    I don't think there is any.. I have been asking students to look at this for several years and they haven't come up with anything comprehensive. You have probably seen these already but the closest I think I have seen is the Scottish studies of various IWI options Some linked to here http://www.greenbuildingforum.co.uk/newforum/comments.php?DiscussionID=10884 Also on this search https://www.google.com/search?q=scottish+study+of+internal+insulation&rls=com.microsoft:en-US:%7Breferrer:source?%7D&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=ie7&rlz=1I7GGHP_enGB463#q=historic+scotland++study+of+internal+insulation&rls=com.microsoft:en-US:%7Breferrer:source%3F%7D
    If you had actual air test data - the annual affect on heat loss could easily be dynamically modelled in Tas. Unfortunately I no longer have access to the software :(

    I read those historic Scotland papers but cant see anything useful for direct comparisons.

    Mike, can you let me see the air test data please as that would be well interesting.
    I don't have any! I was suggesting that would be one way of carrying out research - Get the actual data for an hour at a given pressure (standard bregs test)and then input the value(s) into Tas - then dynamically simulate for a year to give what should be very accurate prediction of energy use for heating
