The History Of Insulation

Posted on March 01,2015 by John Straube in gba radio

In our last episode, Dr. John talked about [**How Heat Moves Through Homes**](node/16722) and why radiant barriers work better in outer space than on earth. In this episode, Dr. John talks about the history of insulation, how different materials work, and where they make sense. **TRANSCRIPT** The history of insulation comes about because of the history of structural engineering. Now, I’m a recovering structural engineer, which is probably why I like to think of it that way.
