Join Earth Advantage & BetterBuiltNW to explore the fundamental laws that govern the dynamic flows within a building in order to understand the interconnectedness of house systems.
Attendees will hear different approaches and best practices for managing thermal, air, and moisture flows that affect the performance and indoor air quality in a home. You'll also analyze the field-proven benefits of different advanced insulation and air sealing options, and review moisture management strategies to gain an understanding of how to integrate these building envelope details into plans and specifications.
Explore how properly designing and constructing a building's envelope (or thermal and moisture barrier) is essential for a comfortable, healthy, durable, and energy-efficient home.
Gain these building science fundamentals that are necessary tools to use when making design, construction and operation decisions that affect the long term resiliency of projects.
This on-demand training consists of 12 videos that users can start or stop at their own pace and easily resume the course at another time. There are no quizzes or final exams. A certificate awarding CCB continuing education will be issued when the course is completed.
