Event Description

This session explores cost-effective opportunities to implement energy efficient and high performance technologies, strategies and processes into remodeling projects for existing homes. The fundamentals of building science - air, heat and moisture flow – will be applied to help participants understand how the elements of a house all work together as a system and how this knowledge can be used by remodelers to reduce risks and find the most cost-effective energy improvements for individual homes.  The format of this session recognizes that many remodeling projects are done as specific projects such as window replacement, roofing, residing or a kitchen remodel.  Participants will learn to identify opportunities for specific sectors of the remodeling industry, within the context of whole house opportunities and embracing building science best practice.
