Home Tightening, Insulation and Ventilation
This online engineering PDH course provides information on the inspection, control and management of air leaks and presents the proper insulation and ventilation processes that make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
The average family spends around half of its annual household energy bill on heating and cooling. This significant number can be dramatically reduced by making some simple energy-saving weatherization and insulation improvements to your home.
Air leaks through the ceiling, walls, foundations and other areas are typically the greatest sources of heating and cooling losses in a home. Insulation slows down the heat flow through a building’s envelope. Proper ventilation protects your home from moisture damage during winter and reduces heat buildup during summer. So, controlling air leaks, having the appropriate insulation and proper ventilation help in extending the life of your home, conserve energy, save money and increase your home’s overall comfort.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to HVAC and mechanical engineers who are interested in learning about controlling air leaks, understanding the proper insulation and ventilation processes in homes.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with major sources of air leaks in a typical home
- Learning about different sealing materials, their main characteristics and applications
- Learning about insulation and its role in creating an energy-saving thermal envelope for a home
- Understanding the main characteristics of the different types of insulating materials
- Understanding the important role of ventilation in protecting homes year-round
