This thread is dedicated exclusively for those students currently enrolled in the InterNACHI course titled, "House as a System." Students are free to pose questions and comments here and join in the conversation with other students. The thread will be monitored by the course instructor.
A house is a system of interdependent parts: Mechanical and physical components. The operation of one part affects many others. When they all work together, the house is comfortable, safe, efficient, and durable.
This course teaches the inspector to:
- become aware of the potential for interaction among building components and mechanical systems;
- understand how air sealing a home can negatively affect indoor air quality; and
- be able to recognize typical air leakage sites and know how they are corrected.
In keeping with InterNACHI's commitment to Continuing Education, this course is open and free to all members, and can be taken again and again, without limit.
