BEC-Iowa will be presenting at the AIA Iowa Central States Region Convention!

Workshop Session 1 ​
Wednesday, September 23, 9:50 a.m.-10:50 a.m.

Building Science: Air Barriers 101
Code requires the use of air barriers, but the selection of the proper type and appropriate transition details are essential to the overall health and longevity of any building. This course will look at the building science of air barriers so participants can better understand their use and function.

By attending this workshop participants will be able to: Participants will learn how energy code requires air sealing and how to prove compliance. Participants will learn the general types of air barriers and which wall assemblies they will work best with. Participants will go over important transition details including different wall types, windows, and proper roofing transitions. Participants will learn the best way to physically prove compliance with testing to energy code and building enclosure commissioning (BECx) standards.
