Thanks for your interest in this 7-hour online CE class covering insulation and ventilation. This class covers the different types of insulation and ventilation systems that we’re likely to encounter in residential construction. It looks at the different ways that heat transfer can affect a structure and the various methods used to try to restrict the flow of heat and humidity through a building’s envelope. It also covers the different methods available to attempt to keep heat and humidity where they’re most beneficial to the home’s occupants.
