Credits: 1 HSW, 1 LU
Building healthier and more efficient commercial buildings. A major factor in doing so is selecting the right form of insulation. This course explores the myriad benefits of using open cell spray foam insulation to create an air tight and highly energy efficient building envelope. Benefits explored include the insulation's high yield, low environmental impact water-based blowing agent, contributions to improved indoor air quality, ability to enhance building occupant comfort. Topics covered include the insulation's unique capability for creating a superior air barrier with essential vapor permeability, its fire ratings and code compliance, and contributions to building longevity and green building. Additionally, health and safety directions, recommendations and best practices for the use of the insulation are covered.
