One building at a time

Thermal 3Ht Insulation

Thermal 3Ht Insulation is a cost effective and efficient insulation system which addresses all mechanisms of heat transfer. In one product, Thermal 3Ht Insulation is an air and vapor barrier, a radiant barrier and an insulator.

  1. Thermal 3Ht Insulation is lightweight, non-toxic and easy to install. It does not irritate the skin and requires no special equipment or clothing.
  2. Thermal 3Ht Insulation eliminates cold and hot spots in any building.
  3. Thermal 3Ht Insulation helps distribute heat evenly; consequently, buildings are more comfortable at lower room temperatures.
  4. Thermal 3Ht Insulation allows thermostats to be set 2 to 4 degrees lower than buildings which utilize conventional insulation products. This results in added comfort with less heat-loss (winter) or heat-gain (summer) i.e. Greater Energy Savings.
  5. Thermal 3Ht Insulation virtually eliminates moisture and air infiltration.
  6. Thermal 3Ht Insulation reflects radiant energy back to its source. This allows buildings to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
  7. Thermal 3Ht Insulation is an effective stand-alone insulation product or may be combined with other insulation products.
  8. Thermal 3Ht Insulation is available in panels/boards, rolls and accordion fold.
  9. Thermal 3Ht Insulation is the ultimate way to keep your home or building comfortable and energy efficient.

By using Thermal 3Ht Insulation you can stop thermal transfer through the wood or steel frame of the exterior walls.

Thermal 3Ht Insulation is available in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses.

Thermal 3Ht all weather shield insulation, radiant barrier and vapor barrier in a single product.

Mechanisms of Heat Transfer

Conduction

Conduction

Is the transfer of energy through matter. It is most effective in solids, but can happen in fluids. Example: hot element on a stove.

In building assemblies heat transfer by conduction occurs through cavity insulation, framing members, interior and exterior sheathing.
Convection

Convection

Is the transfer of heat energy in a gas or liquid by movement of warmed air. Example: steam from a pot of boiling water. Since warm air naturally migrates to cold air, convection within wall and ceiling cavities is a major contributor to energy loss in buildings.
Radiation

Radiation

Is energy transferred by infrared waves through space. Examples: heat from the sun or warmth from a campfire. Radiation penetrates solid surfaces such as shingles, wood and concrete. During the winter, typically 50-75% of heat loss in buildings is a result of radiation and 93% of the heat gain in the summer is radiant.

In the summer once a building's walls, roof and attic have reached their capacity for holding heat, the heat is then radiated to the cooler interior area of the building. In the winter, the opposite occurs. The heat from the inside of the building moves towards the cold air outside the building.
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.

Thermal Building Concepts, LLC

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?
