We all know that an HVAC upgrade or LED lighting project can save energy but have you thought about your building envelope?  It’s important to consider all sides of a building from roof to floors to windows and doors.  In this session we’ll learn the following:

  • Definition of the building enclosure and the importance of the building enclosure to energy efficiency
  • Basic concepts of heat, air and moisture transfer in a building
  • How walls address water, air, vapor and thermal issues and the difference between a “barrier wall” and a “cavity wall”
  • Energy Utilization Index (EUI), how it’s measured and what it means
  • Fenestration systems: selection attributes, performance rating criteria, and strategies for increasing energy performance 
  • Roofing systems: a case study describing an Owner’s experience
