(2.0 CEUs) In climates with cooling needs, the most effective cooling strategy stops heat before it enters the building. This lesson describes how heat enters buildings and the best strategies to stop heat gain. You’ll learn to limit heat gain in buildings, including: solar heat, air leakage, internal heat gains, and heat transmission. This lesson also discusses design details that limit heat gain and how to improve new-building design to minimize heat gain.
