Attendees will gain the necessary knowledge to understand the building science, durability, energy efficiency, and installation details that will need to be considered. These principles and practices will include wall design, insulation strategies, air sealing, product selection, and construction.
Exterior wall insulation provides a solvable challenge and a significant opportunity for building pros to increase the overall energy performance of their projects. Energy code requirements to install building envelopes with less heat loss and gain, build greater resiliency, and reduce thermal bridging are leading builders and tradespeople to evaluate new wall designs and insulation strategies. When considering different code measures or pathways, the integration of exterior insulation into wall systems provides a significant UA reduction that can open new doors to code compliance.
