This presentation will discuss the need for exterior insulation to manage heat transfer and reduce condensation in exterior walls by providing step by step examples of how to determine the amount of continuous insulation required to meet prescriptive code requirements depending on climate zone.
1. Explain the concept of Thermal Bridging and how it impacts building energy usage.
2. Define commerical and residential wood frame wall insulation requirements found in the 2015 IECC.
3. Explain how condensation forms in wall cavities and investigate strategies to mitigate risk of damage to construction while maintaining sustainble and healthy indoor environments.
4. Identify the practical and green building characteristics of continuous insulation as part of the exterior wall sheathing.
