What Does Thermal Mass Mean?

Understanding Thermal Mass

Thermal mass is a property of materials that measures their ability to absorb, store, and release heat, effectively regulating temperature flow within a space. Materials with high thermal mass, such as concrete, bricks, and tiles, can absorb heat during the day and release it slowly when temperatures drop, contributing to a more stable and comfortable indoor environment. Conversely, lightweight materials like fiber cement and timber have low thermal mass and offer less temperature regulation. Incorporating high thermal mass materials into your home’s design can significantly enhance its energy efficiency by reducing the need for mechanical heating and cooling. Consulting with energy efficiency experts like Frys Energywise is crucial to effectively integrate thermal mass into your new home or renovation project for optimal energy performance.
