The Saturn Building Shell Field Guide outlines a set of best practices for technicians who perform air-sealing work, install insulation, and replace doors and windows. It also includes guidance on the buidling shell repairs that are commonly needed as part of these tasks.
An efficient buidling shell is one of the most important componenets of any buidling's efficiency, comfort, and durability. We recognize that the work outlined here requires both knowledge and commitment, and we salute the efforts of those shell technicians who work hard to improve our buildings by applying these rigorous standards.
Chapters focus on such topics as:
- Diagnosing Shell and Duct Air Leakage
- Installing Air Sealing Measures
- Insulating Walls, Ceilings, and Floors
- Installing Doors and Windows
- Imprioving Mobile Home Efficiency
- Health and Safety Issues
