Course Description: AEC Daily: Thermal Bridging: Small Details with a Large Impact
ON-GOING 1.25 hrs
Uncorrected thermal bridging can account for 20–70% of heat flow through a building's envelope. Improving details to mitigate both point and linear thermal bridges will significantly improve energy performance. This course reviews types of thermal bridges, examines how they appear in codes and standards, and explores some mitigation concepts and principles. Calculation methods to account for thermal bridging in your projects are introduced, and a sample design project is used to demonstrate code compliance.
Learn what a thermal bridge is and how newer energy codes and standards address thermal bridging.
Understand three types of thermal bridges and their implications on building performance including thermal and moisture control (e.g., energy use, condensation, mold, comfort, etc.)
Become aware of various thermal bridging mitigation concepts, details, and strategies.
Learn how to apply calculation methods to include thermal bridging in the design and code compliance of a building envelope.
