High Performance Building Series: Air Sealing Techniques

We will cover the following topics and others: • Session 3: Insulation and Air Sealing Techniques that create superior thermal, vapor and air barriers. Over 30% of our heat losses come from air infiltration and a great portion of building failure is ultimately due to poor air sealing Cost: (rates increase the week prior): Single Class: Member - $30/ Non member - $60 Full Series: Member - $100 / Non member - $200

Overview

Achieving high performance building criteria like the German Passive House standard is difficult. Very few people in Colorado know how to achieve a 90% reduction in energy required to heat a home or building. This 4 part training series is intended to be a starting point for that journey.

Session 3: Air Sealing Techniques, high performance window options and installation details for both. Over 30% of our heat losses come from air infiltration and windows/doors are generally the weak link in our envelope. It is absolutely critical to get air sealing, window and door selection and installation right.

  • Windows and doors are the weakest link in our envelope assemblies. We will hear from the leaders in high performance window industry discuss the key aspects of window and door selection.
  • A great window is even greater if it is properly installed and a complete waste of time and money if not.
  • The Europeans are making homes and buildings 6 to 10 times tighter than we are here in the US. Since 30% our heat losses are a result of air infiltration, we will cover advanced air sealing techniques in this session.
