In Perth, where temperatures can fluctuate greatly between summer and winter months, it is crucial to have a temperature regulating system in your home. Fortunately, polished concrete can help with this. It is a common belief that concrete floors can make homes cold during winter, however, this is a misconception as polished concrete is actually a type of thermal mass material. When exposed to sunlight during the day, concrete floors absorb warmth, which they then release at night. This happens because concrete is a thermal mass material that operates on a 12-hour cycle. Therefore, polished concrete can keep your home warm during the night by utilizing the warmth it absorbed during the day. Additionally, during summer months, polished concrete absorbs the cooler temperatures at night and releases them during the day, which ensures that your home stays at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. Using polished concrete in your home can therefore help you save on your energy bills as it often reduces the need for heating and cooling systems.
