Principles of Heat Flow 1. There is a difference between heat and temperature. 2. Heat flows from hot area toward the cold 3. Insulation slows down heat flow. R-value measure of resistance to heat flow. Quality insulation needed varies with climate. 4. Warm air holds more moisture than cold air. 5. Moisture vapor can move through building materials. Rot Timber Ruin some types of Insulation 6. Heat production must equal heat loss or the temperature changes. Heat Loss Q Bldg + Q vent = Q Pigs + Q Supp. Q Bldg = Ceiling + Walls + Floor + Foundation In uninsulated sidewall over 30% building heat loss is from floor + foundation. Often an area to be improved. In a well insulated building over 50% - up to 60-70% of the total heat loss is from the ventilation system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
