Thermal Bridging Calculations

Be introduced to thermal-bridge simulation and analysis using the free LBNL THERM software. Learn the basics of the software with a walk-through from installation, library setup, and then modeling several example conditions within THERM. See how the instructor works through screen-casts. Model along with the instructor through the process and concepts of model sample details. Simulate a variety of thermal bridging case examples, from simple wall designs to more complex details. Most examples focus on wood-frame construction and remain relatively simple.

Passive House Retrofits: The EnerPHit Standard

The Passive House Institute developed EnerPHit certification standards to accommodate the realities of existing old buildings, where foundations, party lines, historic preservation, cost, and other factors make a typical Passive House certification impractical. This course looks at the criteria, the pathways, and the potential exemptions that drive EnerPHit performance to deliver the health, efficiency, and resilience results we expect from Passive House. Through case studies of successful retrofits, see how to upgrade a building with respect to airtightness, insulation, thermal bridge reductions, high-performance windows, and ventilation.
