COOL BREAK

Complete Thermal Break Design for Natural Cooling

Innovation:
A complete thermal break between all wood surfaces and exterior siding and roofing reduces energy use and potential mold and condensation problems. Cool Break is an innovative insulation system provided by Reed Green that uses 2 in. foam on the walls, 1 in. foam on the roof, and a 5/8 in. air space between siding, roof and foam, plus triple pane windows (U value of 20). This highly efficient approach creates a cooling effect like an ice chest.

Benefits:
Cool Break creates a new paradigm in energy delivery systems, minimizing the need for zones, night set backs and massive distribution arrangement needs. The system reduces heat load and heat transfer, thereby reducing dramatically the homeowner’s annual energy use. In addition, the system creates air freshness by eliminating moisture and mold because the condensation point moves into the foam to reduce mildew. With triple pane windows, homeowners benefit from very low energy bills and better health resulting from extremely clean air.
