Reflecting on Heat Transfer Reduction
by Mario Medina, PhD
Most forms of building insulation—fiberglass, mineral fibers, cellulose, and cellular plastic—play a key role in making buildings energy-efficient and in reducing electrical peak demand. However, the amount of material that can be added to building walls or roof-ceiling assemblies is limited either by physical dimensions of the framing (ceiling frames) or adverse effects of over-insulating (weight, heat and moisture retention, and ventilation restrictions). Radiant barriers and interior radiation control coatings (IRCCs) offer another option.
2015 – Quarter 1
The warmest year ever! A new report from NASA and NOAA details that 2014 was the hottest year on record and that should make energy conservation a top priority for many in 2015.
Here is a great article with some small steps homeowners can take to significantly lower their energy consumption in 2015 and beyond.
