The class will introduce the fundamentals of energy and energy transfer, energy systems within a home, the “home as a system” concept, common construction errors that reduce comfort and efficiency, weatherization techniques, and how to conduct an energy audit. Students will analyze how systems and home attributes such as air leaks, insulation, barriers (air, thermal and moisture) and heating and cooling ducts affect occupant health, safety and comfort, energy efficiency and durability.
