Breaking News - It's the End of the World as We Know It (...and it's all down to the 2nd law of thermodynamics!)

Posted 16/01/18

- With apologies to REM - 

The World will End Soon (along with the rest of the Universe)...It's a fact! 

Why? Energy flows "downhill" from from high energy matter to low energy matter; from hot to cold, from the sun to the earth, from the earth into space. In a more general sense this is a progress from order to disorder. This general trend towards disorder - entropy - is one of the consequences of the 2nd law of thermodynamics, and it's irreversible. The reason hot things cool down, for instance...Eventually everything ends up the same temperature. 

How soon? In about 10 ^100 years time, at a guess. In other words, a Googol. Funny, that.

But it's not all bad news.

Kishorn Insulations is doing it's bit to slow this process down...for example by creating a warm roof we are trying to eliminate the temperature differentials within the building where otherwise there might be cold spots, drawing heat away...the cold spaces above the roof ties or behind the hanging posts...creating a thermal envelope that stays warm, more comfortable and makes your home more energy efficient. 

So between now and the end of the world, you might as well save yourself some money and put it towards a holiday somewhere warm!
