A demo at the 2017 HPBZWhat It's About:

Thermal bridging occurs when a more conductive (or poorly insulating) material allows an easy pathway for heat flow across a thermal barrier. It’s often hidden—the most common is wall studs—but, you must keep it in mind when thinking about heat loss (and the heating bills) at you home. Learn how to create thermal breaks that work well with various framing styles and fit into your high performance equation.
