Energy (Fenestration) [DN-15b]
This course will enable attendees to understand the three main components of windows; glazing, spacer and frame. Participants will take away knowledge of how to incorporate passive solar techniques and use thermal mass such as that in precast concrete to absorb solar heat gain. Additionally, types of window systems and how to gain maximum efficiency based on codes such as ASHRAE 90.1 will be discussed.
Learning Objectives
  • Discover the components of a fenestration system.
  • Understand the U-factors for various fenestration products.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the role of emittance values and air-space gases on the thermal performance of windows.
  • Learn how to choose the correct fenestration system for the climate zone in which a project is located.
