  • COURSE ID:         BESTS08-OD
  • AIA CREDIT:         One CEU credit hour/HSW
  • VIDEO LENGTH:  49:20

Summary: In this lesson, SIPschool founder Al Cobb explains on how to integrate mechanical systems into a SIPs project. Topics include working with mechanicals trades, HVAC analysis and how to control pressure conditions that can lead to backdrafting of combustion appliances.

Learning Objectives: INTEGRATING MECHANICAL SYSTEMS WITH SIPS

  • Recognize the importance of pre-construction meetings and layout reviews in order to work efficiently with other trades
  • Understand how the work of other trades relates to the SIP package as a system
  • Explain specifically how to integrate electrical and plumbing work into SIP installation
  • Understand the importance of an HVAC analysis and how it should affect the SIP project
  • Describe how indoor pollutants can be controlled with mechanical ventilation
  • Identify the purpose of blower door and duct testing
  • Summarize how to avoid back-drafting of combustion appliances
