Insulation vs Thermal Mass

There are two ways to keep a building a comfortable temperature. In building science terms they are called insulation and thermal mass. These two properties are very different and the difference can be difficult to understand.

Building Fabric 06 – Thermal Mass – First In Architecture

In this article we explore the benefits of thermal mass, looking at design factors including, construction build up, orientation, ventilation, passive solar and more.

Epic Greenhouse Rocket Mass Heater - The 2-inch insulation board has be laid in on the floor of the thermal-mass trench, 3-4 inches of gravel added, and now the pipe has been assembled with a single screw holding each 2-foot section of pipe together.
