This presentation by Rich Siefert, Professor, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Energy and Housing Specialist, provides examples for explaining heat transfer energy flow. This presentation was originally developed as an online version of the cold climate homebuilding techniques workshop that Extension’s Rich Seifert has taught for many years.

This presentation is one of multiple videos, discussion forums, assignments, and quizzes to be completed as part of the following online courses: Residential Building Science Review and Building Performance: Improving IAQ in Cold Climates. Registration for these free online course are available through the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals at itep.scholarlms.com/courses/ under Tribal Indoor Air Quality
Residential Building Science Review provides tribal environmental professionals with a review of how a home responds as a dynamic system and basic building science principles. This short online course has been developed to prepare individuals for the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals’ in-person Indoor Air Quality Diagnostic Tools course and is required prior to being accepted to the course. Instructors delivering content for this online course expect you have a good understanding of indoor air quality (IAQ) basics and a basic understanding of IAQ and health, environmental conditions, structural design and construction, operation and maintenance issues for residential homes in your community. This online course is equivalent to 0.3 continuing education units (CEUs) and requires approximately three hours of total learning time.
After completing this online course, participants will be able to:
1) Explain how the home responds as a "dynamic system."
2) Identify basic building science principles.
Building Performance: Improving IAQ in Cold Climates was originally developed for Alaska Villages, however, it is applicable to many tribes in cold climates. It will provide participants with an understanding of how the home responds as a “living system” and help participants understand what to look for during a residential home assessment. This online course is equivalent to 0.8 CEUs and requires approximately 8 hours of total learning time.
