This session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology and subsequent changes in energy efficient building design, with a special focus on the role of continuous exterior insulation (CI). The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated buildings are by now well understood; these savings are increasingly being required by stringent local building and energy codes.
During this program, current building science research and field monitoring data will be presented to demonstrate how the effective R value of various insulating materials perform and change in different regional climates, temperature ranges, and seasonal conditions. Strategies for designing and constructing highly insulated and cost-effective wall assemblies while still minimizing thermal bridging will also be discussed.
