What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZ

Depending on your framing style and design, how does thermal bridging figure into your high performance equation? Consideration needs to be given to not only walls, but floor and roof assemblies to insure maximum elimination of thermal bridging. How does determining the location from the ground to the peak of where the home is divided between conditioned and unconditioned space help you determine the path forward? Using examples from our Building Performance Lab, Jason will answer all of these questions and detail how separating indoor air, moisture and thermal differences do make a difference.
