Air Sealing and Insulating Existing Homes: Improving the Thermal Performance of Attic Knee Walls
Thursday, June 9, 2022 (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (PDT)
Testing your work is imperative to meeting or exceeding performance targets and ensuring a feedback loop is in place for continual process improvements. The attic knee wall is typically one of the worst areas of wall thermal performance in existing homes. This two-hour course is designed to help participants evaluate, with test tools and visual assessment, the thermal performance of attic knee walls including skylight shafts. Gavin Healy of Balance Point Home Performance will present options for retrofit assemblies to substantially improve attic knee wall performance. Finally, Gavin will demonstrate how test tools are used to evaluate the efficacy of outcomes from retrofit measures.
