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 in green and sustainable building design.
2. Define commercial/residential wood frame wall insulation requirements found in the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code.
3. Explain how condensation forms in wall cavities and investigate strategies to mitigate risk of damage to construction.
4. Identify characteristics of continuous insulation as part of the exterior wall sheathing compared with other alternatives.
