Understanding Heat Flow Specifically Reflective Insulation
This entry was posted on January 21, 2012.
Here is a packet of great information that discusses convective, conductive and radiant heat. To understand heat flow and radiant barriers click the link. This packet of information is put together as a study guide for architects working on continuing education credits. It is a class named "Reflective Insulation, Radiant Barriers, & Control Coatings" But the packet is also great general information for the consumer and we wanted to share it with you. Please enjoy. And if you are an architect, maybe you will take the class.
How you correctly insulate to increase efficiency and save money depends on your understanding of the materials available to you and your understanding of the building you want to insulate. At a minimum this information will introduce radiant heat blocking insulation and paints to you in a way you can understand in your everyday world.
