Conquering Thermal Bridging is not a Bridge to Far.
Virtual Event | 31 March 2021
10:00 - 14:00 EST
The era of net-zero homes is upon us. The race to design and build the super-efficient homes of tomorrow that is happening today. Canadians use significant amounts of energy to heat, cool, and ventilate their homes. Managing what happens inside the building envelope is only one part of the battle. How do we as an industry, conquer the thermal bridging question?
Due to ever-changing code requirements and building practices, Canadian housing stock has undergone significant change over the years in terms of its thermal performance. As compared to previous decades, new houses are built with higher insulation levels, better airtightness, and more efficient space heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. But with all those internal concerns address, what about outside the building envelope?
We look to address the steps needed to conquer the issues surrounding thermal bridging in the Canadian residential market.
What will I learn?
During this event we will explore:
A clear understanding of the purpose of thermal breaks
The advantages that thermal breaks can provide to MURBS
How to improve façade thermal performance
How the adoption of new technologies and solutions can help address performance objectives
