Constructing homes with thermal mass storage systems, similar to Finnshield, offers several compelling advantages:
- Enhanced Comfort and Energy Efficiency for Homeowners:
Residents enjoy consistently warmer living spaces and significantly reduced energy expenses. Moreover, these systems provide an added layer of resilience, ensuring habitability during grid blackouts.
- Efficient Load Management for Electric Distribution Companies:
These systems enable distribution companies to dynamically manage electrical loads, effectively mitigating peak demand without adversely impacting homeowners. This contributes to a more stable and reliable grid.
- Environmental Benefits:
By incorporating carbon storage solutions for materials like sawdust and recycled wood, rather than resorting to combustion, these homes play a pivotal role in curbing CO2 emissions. Additionally, they reduce the reliance on fossil fuel-powered generating units during peak demand periods, thereby lessening environmental impact.
This innovative approach to home construction not only prioritizes the well-being of homeowners but also aligns with sustainable practices, making it a promising solution for both individuals and communities at large.
Having relatively small investment it is possible to reach up to 10 hour off-grid time in typical Nordic single-family house as illustrated below.
