While turning up the thermostat on chilly nights is fine, it's worth looking at other solutions too, in order to maximise warmth, minimise heat-loss (which could be needlessly firing up those energy bills, too), and add raise the style stakes as well.
According to experts, around a third of a home's total heat-loss escapes through windows and doors - so double glazing is a sound investment, or consider draught-proofing and other solutions, including heavy drapes or shutters.
A Single-pane Highly Insulating Efficient Lucid Designs (SHIELD) program of ARPA-E looks to cut down heat-loss for improved building efficiency through formulating innovative materials that are both transparent and insulating to retrofit existing single-pane windows.
Much theoretical effort has gone in to understanding the gravitational collapse of protostar but the question of gravitational instability of partially-ionized gaseous medium in the presence of radiative heat-loss function is of particular interest in cosmogony.
Hiller: (1) The percent reduction in heat loss due to adding pipe insulation depends to a large extent on the heat-loss environment.
The hypothalamus, upon receiving input from peripheral thermoreceptors located in the skin and central thermoreceptors sensitive to blood temperature located in the body core (the organs within the skull and the thoracic and abdominal cavities), responds like a thermostat to this input by reflexively initiating appropriate heat-promoting or heat-loss activities via autonomic pathways, allowing the hypothalamus to anticipate changes of the core temperature (Marieb 2004).
The measurement for low heat-loss in glass is called a U-factor; the lower the U-factor the better the insulating value.
The conductivity of the composite specimen serves to promote the heat-loss mechanisms because the panel acts like a heat-exchange fin.
The new Insulator Wrap[TM reduces hand shock, absorbs bow recoil, secures grip, and reduces heat-loss in the hand.
Data indicate that norepinephrine elevations may create the illusion that the body had overheated, and trigger a variety of heat-loss strategies.
This gauge extends pressure measurement from high vacuum to atmosphere through the use of a new Conductron(R) heat-loss sensor incorporated in the same vacuum envelope with proven Micro-Ion gauge technology.
ARPA-E s Single-pane Highly Insulating Efficient Lucid Designs (SHIELD) program seeks to reduce heat-loss for improved building efficiency by developing innovative materials that are both transparent and insulating to retrofit existing single-pane windows.
