Building Science 2.2: Airtightness and Air Barriers – 18DS




Before taking this class, you should have completed “Building Science Principles and Practice 1: Overview and Introduction to Control Layers” or an earlier version of that class titled “Building Science Principles and Practice for Nonresidential and Highrise Residential Enclosures”.

Controlling airflow through the building enclosure is critical for managing energy use, durability, comfort, and health. In this on-demand program, Dr. John Straube discusses why control of infiltration air is necessary in a high performance building, the definition and function of air barriers (not to be confused with vapor or water barriers), and how to select, design, and build effective air barrier systems.
