Loughlin, president of the American Insulation Association, which represents insulating companies.“It absorbs the energy, and if you’re cold and it’s not warm, then the insulator absorbs the heat, and it dissipates it.”The best insulating materials also have low-density (low-energy) conductivity, which […]
