Module 1: Building Science Fundamentals
- This event has passed.
Learn in-depth building science fundamentals, terminology and encourage energy retrofit options. Join us for the first of a three-part Advanced Home Energy Score Assessor Training Series, previously live webinars, now on-demand.
An increasing number of home buyers and sellers are looking to score their homes for energy efficiency. Assessors who attend this training will learn to apply their knowledge of building science terminology while working with customers. Learn to analyze how dynamic flows will affect the performance of a house, and to evaluate these homes in order to more effectively discuss home retrofits. By helping customers understand how their home performs, you will be able to guide them towards energy efficiency improvements.
- Understand laws of thermodynamics and the house as a system.
- Evaluate insulation, duct design, and thermal properties of the material.
- Analyze moisture movement and relative humidity.
- Create plans for increasing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) while evaluating additional healthy homes considerations.
