Air Barriers and Air Leakage in Buildings

This presentation describes the basics of a continuous air barrier and why limiting air leakage with a continuous air barrier saves energy.  It explains how to comply with air leakage and continuous air barrier requirements in national energy codes, including how precast concrete can comply.  An overview of compliance paths of these energy codes is presented.

Energy Efficiency Using National Energy Codes and Standards

The presentation explains the building envelope provisions and related compliance paths for the national energy codes ASHRAE 90.1-2016 and the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC-Commercial). The scope includes building envelope requirements for nonresidential and mid to high-rise residential buildings. It focuses on new construction, additions, or major renovations. It also explains criteria for mass walls.

Thermal Mass, Energy Codes, and Precast Concrete

Mass walls in combination with insulation can save energy in buildings. This presentation describes the benefits of thermal mass (thermal inertia) and how these benefits are recognized in national energy codes. An overview of compliance paths of these energy codes is presented. The degradation of the R-value of concrete panels with metal thermal bridges that pass through the insulation is also described.
