Maintaining an Even Temperature

These mats—pods filled with refined vegetable oils—staple right onto studs, over insulation and beneath drywall, to increase the thermal mass of your home (the so-called M-value). By absorbing excess heat during the day and releasing it at night, BioPCM evens out the natural temperature spikes that your heating and cooling systems work to overcome, thus making their job easier—and your utility bills lower.

It costs about $3.25 per square foot, and the manufacturer says the return on investment is less than three years.
