Never before has a modern society placed such an exacting priority on environmentally responsible living. Across all facets of life, “Being Green” has taken center stage. In our own lives we respond with an increased focus on using less energy and relying on fewer natural resources.
By now, you may have seen a couple of our thermographic videos comparing Warmboard to a variety of competitors. And while the results are visually impressive, it may still leave some asking, “What exactly am I looking at?”
When it comes to specialized industries, it can often be hard for outsiders to understand what exactly is happening. Each industry has its own way of doing things, its own lingo, its own nuances. Terminology used in the tech industry (SaaS, iOS, Ice Cream Sandwich, MySQL, UI/UX) is very different from that used in the Radiant Heating industry (Parasitic Loss, Passive Solar, R-Value, STC and IIC ratings).
As such, when people outside the industry need to learn about radiant technology, there can often be a communication gap.

We’ve starting a new series on our blog where we let Contractors, Architects and Homeowners explain, in their words, why Warmboard works for them. If you have some experience with Warmboard and would like to be featured, send over a request.
Our first post comes from Desmond Greaves, owner of DG Custom Built Homes & Remodeling, LLC. in Bay Shore, New York:
This year, Warmboard was presented with an amazing opportunity to work on Sunset Magazine’s 2012 Idea House in Healdsburg, California. This year’s home, The Breezehouse, is open for public tours starting in August.
