gaseousphobic surface

Repels gaseous state matter in order to reduce effect of conductive heating/cooling

I don't know how this could work.

Something to do with the boundary layer and surface energy. I don't have a clue about surface chemistry.

Well...a hyperaquaphobic, if it still worked with gaseous water would push away a good portion of the air..perhaps creating enough flow to keep the rest of the air at bay?

Perhaps one could do it with static electricity?

       /static electricity/ Ion wind, search youtube or wiki.   

       Hydrobead is successful in repelling water using fine hairs like that of a lotus flower. Maybe something similar can be employed here.
