(1.5 CEUs) In most buildings, walls make up the largest surface area of the building envelope. Because wall area is so large, insulators can optimize building energy-efficiency by installing wall insulation correctly. This course covers the following topics.

  • Common wall insulation materials and their characteristics.
  • How poor installation affects energy performance.
  • How to select the right wall-insulation material.
  • How to install wall insulation correctly.
  • How to recognize building flaws that affect R-value.

This lesson discusses the wide variety of fibrous and foam insulation materials, used for wall insulation.
