This course focuses on high performance buildings which typically use a lot of energy to run and so are even more important to design efficiently. Buildings like Datacenters use a lot of energy and their temperature and humidity levels must be carefully controlled. Discover how energy costs and maintenance costs associated with these buildings can be substantially reduced by insulating the building envelope to make the entire structure more thermally efficient and also reduce the risk of condensation.
By the end of this course you will:
- understand the benefits of insulating high performing buildings such as datacenters, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and other high tech manufacturing plants
- understand how energy efficiency is improved and condensation risk eliminated by insulating the building envelope
- understand the different available materials that can be used to insulate the critical building elements
