WEBINAR: Weatherization: Insulation and Building Science

Tue February 15, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

1.0 LU | HSW

Presented by CLEAResult

Zoom Registration required

Course Description:

This course will instruct on how to make a home more efficient for all seasons. Learning the basics of observing what is needed for a home to be energy-efficient and safe for occupants throughout all seasons. The U.S. Department of Energy released the results of the National Evaluation of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). The result from these studies provides the success of its endeavors. Energy efficiency is a primary focus of Weatherization and the evaluations showed that single-family households saved an average of over $200 on energy bills annually. Yet, the most inspiring benefits of the program had nothing do with energy at all. It is a proven fact that the “non-energy” benefits associated with weatherization and retrofit activities are huge! The health benefits were some of the most impressive results to come out of the evaluations. According to these peer-reviewed findings, participants in the Weatherization program can reduce the need for emergency room visits and other health-related costs, saving families thousands in non-energy related benefits.

Learning Objectives

  • The course will begin with insulation basics and then extend to all areas of making a home more energy efficient which will not only help the homeowners energy consumption but will also benefit their health, welfare, and the environment.
  • Fundamentals of Building Science, Insulation and Energy Consumption: Heat Transfer 1. Conduction 2. Convection 3. Radiation
  • What is infiltration and why is it important: Air Infiltration & Air Sealing, Air Quality, Introducing statistical figures on lack of insulation and moisture.
  • New Homes vs. Existing Homes: Understanding Construction Basics, vented vs. Unvented Attics, HVAC, how “green” is your home and green misconceptions D. Tax Rebates and Government Programs, National Grid incentives and rebates.
  • Green Building Programs & Differences:  National Green Building Standard, LEED 3. Energy Star, NARGreen
