The effective use of thermal insulation in buildings is a relatively recent development. In reality, present-day minimum insulation standards represent only an intermediate step towards truly low-carbon foot print buildings. Proposed new insulation performance standards and design solutions are decisions that will have a long-term impact on the performance of any building.
For most buildings, reduced energy use is generally the single most obvious economic benefit. Today, more than ever, minimizing energy consumption is a priority. Energy efficient buildings commonly use less than half as much energy as their conventional counterparts, with some buildings consuming less than a quarter as much energy.
At Thermal Building Concepts we believe insulation must perform, not by itself, but as a system in the entire building assembly. Conventional R-value testing only measures how insulation products perform by themselves. Factors such as wind, moisture, air movement, and building components like wood and metal framing members, sheet rock, OSB, etc. are not considered in conventional R-Value testing.
Thermal 3Ht Insulation's extensive ASTM testing considers the "Real World" performance of insulation products in actual wall assemblies. In many tested wall assemblies Thermal 3Ht Insulation on its own and/or combined with fiberglass insulation improved the overall R-value performance by over 100%.
After all, what's most important to you; the R-value of an insulation product in a laboratory? Or the actual R-value performance of a complete wall assembly in simulated "Real World" conditions?
