When it comes to high performance home design and construction, the principles of building science remain constant, while their application is determined by a project’s location. This course explains building science principles and demonstrates how to cost-effectively apply them to home building practices and construction techniques to increase the efficiency, performance, comfort and durability of a home in each climate zone.
As a graduate of this course, participants will be able to:
- Examine how building envelopes can be optimized for each climate zone to maximize home performance in remodeling projects.
- Review the benefits of systems based design and construction and how to properly implement these practices in a building project.
- Apply building science principles to building projects to maximize home performance and comfort.
- Identify the best climate zone-specific building practices based on building science and systems based design principles.
