The Insulation Solution Course: A Recap

Industry News

As we’ve discussed in previous publications, RVI places a high value on the importance of education. Whether it’s attending industry trade shows and conferences, hosting forums with the Headwaters Builders Association (HBA), or receiving additional training and certifications, we know that we can never stop learning. 

Today’s blog provides a short recap of a recent training we held in conjunction with HBA, and it highlights our commitment to educating ourselves and the builders we work alongside. 

A Recap of Our Recent Course 

Sam and Ashly recently created a continuing education course for presentation at HBA’s Contractor Forum Continuing Education Day. This annual event represents a great opportunity for regional builders and contractors to gather, learn, and network.

The course that RVI presented was titled The Insulation Solution. The course was written to help attendees understand that insulation best practice is designed with the whole home system in mind and includes three key elements: insulation, air sealing, and ventilation. 

The course explored not only the benefits of insulation for the builder, homeowner, and the environment but also discussed building science solutions specific to our Northern Wisconsin climate. 

Attendees of our HBA continuing education course walked away with a more in-depth understanding of insulation, and the ability to mobilize resources that will help them build better homes.

The drive to further our education is closely related to our primary goal, which is to bring sustainable building practices to our Northwoods communities. 

It’s not just creating comfortable homes that we are after. It’s the opportunity to improve the energy efficiency and sustainability of homes using a scientific approach to air-sealing and insulation technology — while putting our customers first. 

In essence, we understand that building sciences continually evolve, and our learning and growth must keep pace. 

Are you a Northern Wisconsin home builder looking for actionable ways to build better, more efficient, healthier homes? We have the knowledge and the resources you need.
