Finding Major Air Leaks : Common areas of air leakage found in residential buildings. In many buildings, air leakage is the single greatest source of heat loss through the building envelope. Air leakage areas can be difficult to find, but they’re usually inexpensive to fix. Course covers where to look for major leakage areas and how to correctly seal leakage areas. Techniques to measure the post-improvement effectiveness of air-sealing work. South Middlesex Opportunity Council/Green Jobs Academy
Heating and Cooling Introduction lesson covers how the thermal envelope, HVAC systems and occupant behaviors affect the heating and cooling needs of buildings. One essential purpose of a building is to provide comfort. Buildings that don’t provide adequate comfort cause occupant dissatisfaction and reduced occupant productivity. Covers the following topics: Seasonal space-conditioning loads, How the building envelope affects heating-and-cooling loads, Cost-effective HVAC-efficiency strategies. http://onlinelearning.greenjobsacademy.org/enrol/index.php?id=14
