This course teaches the effects of air leakage in a building, air barrier definitions, and types of air barriers. We review air barrier technology and demonstrate the impacts of high air leakage regarding health, indoor air quality, building durability, and indoor comfort. Finally, we look at fire resistance rated assemblies that provide superior protection for fire sprinkler systems providing superior life safety for the occupants.

Attendees should have basic knowledge of the IECC and fire resistance rated assemblies for construction types requiring sprinkler fire suppression systems.


  • We demonstrate the impact of convective heat transfer comparing real world ACH50 air leakage energy models to illustrate the importance of air tightness for energy consumption.
  • Condensation control, healthy indoor air quality, building durability, and occupant comfort.
  • Advanced thermal resistance calculations to demonstrate the impacts of voids and thermal bypass to the thermal resistance of conventional construction assembly types.
  • Technology solutions that can be grouped together as a system to create repeatable processes for high performance construction.
