Product:ACS CIC 4.0
Goal:Reduce Solar Heat Load, reduce HVAC run time, and make the rooms more comfortable
Goal: Apply ACS CIC 4.0 to exterior wall of sleeping quarter 1 to block solar heat loading to allow the thermostat to be set higher and make all 3 rooms more comfortable.
ACS CIC 4.0 was applied to the west facing wall as shown in the diagrams above on September 12, 2017. The final coating of ACS CIC 4.0 was tinted to match the building. However, the original color of this wall was a lighter color than the building. You can see the lighter color in the back portion of the wall visible in the picture above. On some days the exterior wall measures at hotter temperature than before the coating was applied due to the darker color being a heat sink, but the interior wall was cooler due to the thermal insulating properties of the ACS CIC 4.0.
On August 4th, 2017 the high temperature according to wunderground.com was 93°F. The exterior surface of the wall measured 132.2 °F with FLIR imaging gun. The interior wall measured 74.2°F. The thermostat was set to 66°F but the interior temperature was 76°F. This is 10°F higher than the setting causing the HVAC unit to run continuously.
