September 1, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM EDT Free
Windows have an outsized effect on overall building performance and occupant comfort and health, and you can’t meet Passive House performance requirements without hitting the rigorous thermal comfort demands for glazing. Teams need to understand the ramifications of glazing options early to not get tripped up. From the basics to standards, to advanced modeling and project examples – rediscover how high-quality windows and design integration can provide support for your design goals.
1 AIA LU – Learning Objectives:
Outline the window thermal comfort requirements for PHI certification, including installation Psi-Value effects.
Describe how new modeling tools can allow designers to better understand thermal comfort effects from glazing.
Outline how winter radiant temperatures and summer solar gain can be modeled within various simulation tools.
Describe how PHI evaluates window glazing products for suitability in certified Passive House projects.
