What are thermal breaks? They are any form of solid insulation that doesn’t allow cold or hot to transfer to an adjacent surface. To demonstrate how this works I took a Styrofoam cup and filled it with boiling water. Then I took a temperature reading of the water with a laser thermometer. The temp of the water was 185 f. The temp of the Styrofoam cup was 94 f. I slid a card board sleeve on the cup and due to air ventilation under the sleeve the temp was around 72 f.

When we install our Therma vent insulation system this same principal is at work. On one test we did the temp on the roof was 165 f and the temp in the attic was 150 f. After installing the thermal break the temp in the attic was reduced to 103f. We thought that was amazing.

This is a video describing our custom ventilation system and its built in thermal break:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OX_l3e1qPMw
