Since steel is not a good thermal conductor (it's a diffuser) it's uses
are good in enviormentally friendly "geen homes."  Since one can reduce
electricity dependence up to 60% with the use of steel in the frame of
the structure, solar powered configurations don't have to work as hard!
 At Tri-Steel we have 8 ft spans which allow for maximun spacing for
wiring and placement of panels.  check us out at Tri-Steel.com   We do
customs, but also have over 200 floorplans to choose from in which
solar power can be utilized.

What a Dufus, Just how is Steel not a better conductor of heat than say
WOOD, or concrete????

k = 25 Btu/h-ft-F


... 0.063, 400 times less conductive


... 0.79, 32 times less conductive.

  Thank you for the real numbers Nick. There is science and then
there is belief. Those that believe would never let those science
and proof numbers get in the way of their beliefs.
