Building insulation is a very important design consideration. Properly insulated buildings can save energy resource and money significantly. This course is designed to help engineers and architects learn how to properly insulate a home. In this course you will learn how to insulate attic hatches, basements, ceilings, attics, crawl spaces, slabs, and walls. In addition, it also provides helpful tips on air sealing, moisture control and R-value calculation. Although the course materials are tailored for residential construction, the insulation principles are applicable to commercial construction. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
