It may be hard to believe, but NESEA’s Building Energy Conference
is less than 2 weeks away, March 8-10. Yes, another year has passed. We’re sending you a heads up on five session to see at a minimum. There are other reasons to come, but these are mine. To sweeten the pot, NESEA has created a special promotion code for you to use. With this code: FRIENDOFNESEA (note that this code is case sensitive), your friends and colleagues will receive $25 off the non-member workshop, conference and trade show pass pricing (this does not include NESEA Night). The code should be entered into the “discount code” field at the top of the registration page.
Tuesday, March 8 – 9:00 am to 5:00 pm: Diagnosing and Air Sealing Large Commercial and Institutional Buildings
The always interesting, informative and entertaining Larry Harmon’s air sealing in commercial buildings session should be on your calendar. Larry’s session will focus on both air leakage and thermal deficiencies. He’ll discuss how, when, where and why to test; how to determine if there is a problem; how to fix what is found and finally, how to test again to be sure the problem was solved. In addition to the building science nitty gritty, topics will include how to choose appropriate materials, safety/OSHA considerations and how to ensure a quality installation.
