Passive House Module: Insulation & Thermal Bridging
This 30-minute module covers the basics of Passive House insulation materials and techniques that improve thermal comfort, cut energy costs, enhance resilience, and extend the lifespan of building components. The module also explains the principles behind thermal bridges – conductive spots that undermine the thermal performance of a building– and offers solutions to take care of them.
This introductory course is appropriate for learners of all levels and covers essential strategies for a wide variety of building types.
It is recommended, but not required, that students take the one-hour, foundational Passive House Primer before completing this module.
