VALUABLE INFORMATION ON ENERGY SOLUTIONS

Make Thermatile an Integral Part of Your Commercial Building

Ceiling tiles are extremely common in commercial buildings. They block noise, reflect light, and can hide unsightly utilities in a large, warehouse building. And now, your ceiling tiles can also reduce energy use with Thermatile by Insolcorp.

Thermatile looks similar to traditional ceiling tiles on the outside. But, on the inside, it’s full of phase change material (PCM). PCM is a specially-formulated material that absorbs and releases heat, keeping a building’s temperature within a comfortable range. Using PCM can reduce the energy use of commercial buildings by 20 to 30 percent.

What Makes Thermatile Different

Traditional PCM is usually put into more malleable sheets that can be rolled. These sheets are effective, but they can be more difficult to install in certain scenarios. Thermatile, on the other hand, can be easily installed in any drop ceiling either above or in place of regular ceiling tiles. 

Encased in a hard plastic shell, Thermatile can withstand regular exposure in a room that sees a lot of use. The appearance and design of the Thermatile offers a versatility not often seen in PCM, and allows it to become an integral part of a commercial building. Thermatile can be hidden in the ceiling, exposed on walls, or even replace ceiling tiles entirely in a 2×2 ceiling grid. These features give Thermatile the flexibility to be installed in a wide variety of buildings.

Retrofit Your Building Without the Disruption

Installing energy-efficient technology into a building is usually a major undertaking. Often, businesses have to close or interrupt their work while efficiency equipment is installed. With Thermatile, installation only takes a few minutes. Anyone with a ladder can pop out an old ceiling tile and replace it with Thermatile.

This ease of installation allows commercial building owners to incorporate PCM in almost every part of their building, maximizing energy savings.

D.I. Pathways Makes Energy Savings Even Easier

Though Thermatile is easy to install and versatile, it can be costly for many businesses to buy outright. Alternatively, with D.I. Pathways’ monthly utilization model, though, businesses pay a low monthly fee to get Thermatile installed in their buildings. The fee is guaranteed to be lower than the energy savings from traditional PCM, and the savings are insured.
