As the temperature rises, the roof and walls of your building that receive full sun experience thermal heat loading.   

Traditional insulation works by slowing the conductive heat through the building envelope into the condition space.  As the exterior heats up far above the ambient temperatures the insulation can’t keep the heat out and the interior of your building, often just a few rooms heats up to an uncomfortable level.  This will cause your air conditioner to run continuously and result in some rooms being too cold and some rooms being uncomfortably warm.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

A fluid applied thermal barrier, such as ACS CIC 4.0, can be sprayed on to provide a seamless waterproof envelope over the entire surface.  It can be applied to almost any clean dry substrate, some examples are wood, concrete, metal, stucco, and drywall.  If the coating is applied outside it will have the additional benefit of reflecting up to 97% of the sun’s radiation and lowering the temperature of the surface to the ambient temperature.  When it is sprayed on the inside of a building it prevents the insulation or surface of the walls from radiating heat into the condition space of the building.

Here is an example of a building before it was coated.  The exterior temperature measured 135.3°F with a FLIR imaging camera and the interior was 79.1°F.  The AC was run continuously in this room, but it was uncomfortably warm.

After applying ACS CIC 4.0 Ceramic Insulation Coating to this wall the outside measured 136°F and the inside 66.8°F. 

This made a significant difference in the ability to cool this room.  Click Here to read more about this project.
