Air entrained concrete reduce heat conduction?
I am building a net-zero village in zone 6. My houses are slab on grade. I would love to save my customers the cost of wood floors on top of the slabs by somehow making the slabs acceptable to them. As I understand the most repellent aspect of the concrete floors is the highly heat conductive quality of concrete such that no matter how much insulation ( I am currently planning on 4″ ) you put below the slab the concrete still aggressively steals heat out of the feet of the occupants, resulting in a rather significant loss of comfort. Although, I am intending to give a nice pair of slippers with home purchase; my question is: does anyone have any experience with air entrainment reducing the heat conduction of concrete? Thank you in advance.
