Presented by ClimaSpec | Structural Thermal Breaks
Course Description: Incorporating structural thermal breaks into building design improves the energy efficiency of the building envelope, reduces the risk of condensation, and improves occupant comfort levels. Learn the impact that thermal bridging has on buildings and the importance of using structural thermal breaks to improve building design. This course identifies typical details where structural thermal breaks are used to minimize thermal bridging. While also highlighting the numerous benefits of using structural thermal breaks such as tax incentives, LEED points, code compliance, increased occupant comfort, and more.
- Understand thermal bridging and the impacts it has on a building.
- Identify typical locations thermal bridging occurs.
- Understand the importance of designing with structural thermal breaks.
- Discuss the typical locations structural thermal breaks can be used within a building envelope.
