Mass effect

Describes the effect of a high-mass material on heating or cooling requirements.

In climates with lots of sunshine, low humidity, and large daily temperature fluctuations, high-mass materials can mean a reduction in cooling and heating requirements by delaying the time at which the heat is released into the house.The physical volume or bulk of a solid body; or a grouping of individual parts or elements that compose a body of unspecified size.
