THERMA Block Insulated Concrete Masonry Units contain an insulated thermal barrier, which effectively creates high-insulated thermal mass, high heat capacity, and a long thermal lag time. These attributes are combined to create walls that require just a fraction of the energy normally needed to keep the interior cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.
Less energy is consumed, and smaller capacity HVAC equipment can be used, resulting in significant, cost effective and long term building energy us reduction.
Higher Thermal Mass is Cost Effective: The THERMA insulated masonry unit increases your project’s thermal mass. This masonry unit features an expanded polystyrene insulation installed at the plant. This block design creates an energy barrier between the exterior wall veneer and the interior core. The installation creates a thermal mass design reducing air temperature fluctuations.
