This rare hands-on field training event will cover technique and best practices for “dense packing” insulation installation using on a real project site (not staged or using props). Discussion will cover properly configuring and adjusting the insulation blower to achieve dense pack goals, using testing and verification techniques with an infrared camera to confirm that the required density is being met to avoid future sagging. This training includes individual mentoring for all participants.
Proper installation techniques and best practices do not always come naturally to installers. Even installers that have been doing this work for years can benefit from a hands-on upgrade to their technique. This training will take a step-by-step approach to teaching the “how and why” behind each action. Through hands-on exercises you’ll use an infrared (IR) camera to collect, capture, and diagnose thermal findings.
The Trainer: Gary Goodman has 40 years of hands-on experience installing dense-pack insulation.
