Phase-change materials in a heating climate, Zone 6B
I’m hoping to break ground Spring 2016 on a Pretty Good (or better) House in Carbondale, CO (climate zone 6B).The site has excellent solar for winter heating and broad diurnal swings for summer cooling. It would seem that PCM would be a great technical solution, but I haven’t seen any compelling case studies. Has anyone seen good research on the use of phase-change materials (PCM) in a heating climate?
