Phase change materials perform the same function as ice in a cooler. While the ice melts the cooler stays cool. This principal has been applied to a simple sheet material that melts and solidifies at room temperature set points, saving up to 25% on heating and cooling costs.
Due to its low cost, ease of installation and short ROI the financials of this product are the primary selling point.
In both new construction and retrofit work designers are running out of simple ways to dramatically reduce energy usage, this system provides an effective way to do just that with non-toxic, natural materials.
