Description: The 2018 IECC went into effect on February 14, 2022, bringing with it significant energy savings, mainly from improved envelope tightness. This training will include a high-level review of building science concepts including basic thermodynamics (how heat moves), including stack effect, and conditions that result in optimum occupant comfort. The program will focus on high-impact energy code provisions and items with relatively high noncompliance as found by a DOE/PNNL field study completed in 2018. Specific topics will include envelope insulation, air sealing, and testing, whole-house mechanical ventilation, HVAC equipment sizing, duct insulation, sealing, and testing, and service hot water pipe insulation and circulating system controls. Instructors will also present the use of checklists and third-party verification forms.
Continuing Ed: The course is approved by ICC for 3.0 continuing education training hours.
Registration: Online only. Registration closes March 24th.
