Building Science 101 – Exclusive Webinar for ABAA Contractor Members
February 26 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Topic: Building Science 101
Speaker: Ryan Dalgleish
The concept of building science is to help us understand how our buildings work as systems and how the physics of heat, air, and moisture flows need to be understood in order to design and construct a high-performance building that will be energy efficient, durable and sustainable. This presentation will review how heat, air and moisture function and provide insight into how we can control these flows to ensure optimal building performance.
1) Understand some of the myths in regards to vapor, air and thermal transfer
2) Identify the concept of “Building as a System” and how the building enclosure relates to this
3) Explain the forces of moisture, air and heat flow, as applicable to a building
4) Define how to control these forces effectively to save energy and reduce risk of moisture damage
