Not so fast. This was written by Tom Murphy of the "Do the math" blog. A fantastic blog on energy conservation.

Going to the source, his blog, there are a few problems pointed out in the comment section.

My biggest problem is with the percentages based on the unusual shape of the house. This theoretical house is square, one story, and large, at 2422SF. This makes the floor and ceiling very large compared to the walls. My rectangle ranch style house has much more SF of walls than floor or ceiling.
