Like a windbreaker over a sweater, our homes need both good insulation and a continuous air barrier for the system to work right.  As we build and remodel toward much lower energy use, construction professionals need to build skills in air sealing, blocking thermal bridges, and good thermal details to make houses really perform.

This excellent workshop combines class time on the Building Science concepts with a hands on practicum on an historic home remodeling project.
How to seal wall and shell penetrations that 90% of builders miss, before and after walls are closed
Focus on attic and basement detailing
Understanding air pressure and infiltration in houses and it's effects on both moisture and air quality
How poorly installed insulation hurts performance
The use of Blower Doors, Infrared Camera, and other Building Performance tools to improve our work  
The EPA Thermal Bypass Checklist and reducing Heat Bridges for Passive House and other low energy standards

Instructor:  Tom Balderston
Efficiency Trainer, An Experienced  Designer, Builder, and Contractor  who works full time helping  building and retrofit teams meet and certify under Green Program standards and low energy targets
