Energy Efficiency and Historic Buildings, How to Improve Energy Efficiency, Published by Historic England in 2018, defines thermal inertia as: ‘The ability to absorb, store and release heat energy. Thick-walled traditional buildings can absorb and store heat effectively and transmit it slowly because of the mass, density, specific heat capacity and conductivity of stone, brick, lime, mortar and earth.’
