Heat3 Course – Attendance by Videoconference Available!
February 12 @ 9:00 am - February 13 @ 5:00 pm
As building codes across North America gradually tighten requirements on the building envelope performance, the importance of mitigating thermal bridging is increasing. For instance, in the soon to be released update to the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB), the thermal bridge effect of structural penetrations, shelf angles, anchors, and ties, among other elements, can no longer be ignored.
Heat3 is a 3D thermal modeling tool that lets users assess and optimize thermal bridging in assemblies, junctions, and penetrations. The software has become an invaluable tool for building energy modelers and envelope consultants for advising clients on thermal bridge impact and mitigation. In response to this increasing demand, Peel Passive House Consulting is offering a two day heat3 course in Toronto. This course will teach participants how to correctly and efficiently build models, run simulations, and assess and optimize thermal bridging.
An option to attend virtually (by videoconference) is available. We have run courses with a combination of in-person and virtual participants in the past and it has worked well.
Peel Passive House is an official training partner of BLOCON, the developers of Heat3. Participants who take our course are eligible for a 20% discount on the heat3 software.
