In another topic @hot_rod
raises an interesting question regarding thermal mass. He points out that in a very hot location, such as Death Valley, we could be looking at delta T's in the 40 degree plus range.
This raises the question for people who are living in extreme temp areas - hot or cold - Is having a large thermal mass practical for these areas.
At this location, we will see a few days of - 20 and a few days of + 100 each year, and high mass works wonderfully for us.
points out if you get a high mass hot, you will have the devil of a time to cool it down.
