Installing Infinite-R™ on the underside of rafters is an “all-weather” strategy that is a fantastic solution for any climate. When installed within an attic system, Infinite-R™ may act as a venting strategy to help better transfer of air coming in from eaves and escaping up through ridge vents for cooling of shingle roofs.
What is Phase Change Material?
Think of your home like a drink cooler…
If you wanted to keep the temperature inside a cooler ideal for drinks, why would you use a heating and cooling system to do this when you could use ICE (aka Phase Change Material)? Yet this is exactly what we do with our buildings.
Infinite R™ is a building product that behaves as a Phase Change Material (PCM) designed to freeze and thaw at the exact temperature you want, to keep your living and working spaces closer to target temperature without the use of conventional energy sources.
When your home or space gets hot (from solar gain, occupants, cooking, partying etc), Infinite R™ absorbs unwanted heat as the material inside it’s cells begin to melt. Later when the temperatures get cooler, Infinite R™ released that heat as it begins to freeze (at night) – all the while maintaining the space at a comfortable target temperature.
