Thermal Mass in Hot Humid Climates
I am looking for information on thermal mass in hot humid climates as it relates to two different questions. First, is the foam block in ICFs enough to keep the concrete core from heating up when nocturnal temperatures do not dip below that of inside temperatures for three months?
Second, dose anyone know of research done on the efficacy of placing thermal mass inside conditioned spaces as a means of moderating AC loads?
