What you will learn

Based on the CSA Standard F280-12, students get a firsthand introduction of the basic principles of building science and heat loss/gain. Through various in-class exercises, the student will learn how to determine the thermal resistance (R value) of various building assemblies, such as walls and ceilings. Accurately, calculate room by room heat loss and gain while considering the influences of occupancy, exposure, ventilation, air leakage across the building envelope and more.

Major Takeaway

  • Get recognized by municipal building officials and plans examiners for having the technical competency needed to perform residential load calculations and size heating and cooling appliances accordingly.
