Upcoming Silicon Valley Energy Watch Trainings
PG&E Air Sealing to Achieve Zero Net Energy - New Techniques and Applications
One of the key components to achieving a Zero Net Energy building is the tightness of its envelope to air infiltration. In this training, Terry Nordbye will use real world examples to explain the need and importance of air sealing. In addition, methods to incorporate air sealing into building design and construction will be presented. Most importantly, a comparison between the different air sealants and air sealing techniques based on the locations of air leaks in the building’s envelope will be discussed with the use of detailed images from the field as well as hands-on props. In conclusion, the training will present the recommended air sealants and techniques to reduce air infiltration and to produce the best fit for a long-lasting air sealing barrier. You are sure to leave the room with a new and deeper understanding of how to air seal your next project.
The Silicon Valley Energy Watch program is funded by California utility ratepayers under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
