Interior Thermal Mass
Interior Thermal Mass: Designing a High Performance Interior Environment

May 11, 2015

Why do we need interior thermal mass if we’ve already insulated a building? This commonly asked question is best answered by explaining that insulation works to prevent thermal loss through the enclosure but insulation does not work to recover excess heat that results from people, lighting, and equipment that occupy the interior of the building. Thermal mass, on the other hands, works in conjunction with insulation and reduces thermal transfer through conduction and heat absorption characteristics that most benefits the interior.
