2015 IECC Energy Code Training:
Making Buildings Tighter, Healthier, and Code Compliant
What was previously voluntary (air leakage and duct leakage testing), is now a mandatory energy code compliance requirement.
The 2015 IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) changes the way buildings will be constructed. Paying close attention to building air leakage and HVAC duct leakage are the two most important details that will determine whether any new construction gets a pass or fail for energy code compliance. This training focuses on these two critical components.
- Brief history of energy codes and why their compliance and enforcement are important.
- Building science basics: (How air enters and exits a building.) o Build it tight!
- Keep it dry!
- Ventilate it right!!!
HOW PAYING ATTENTION TO THESE DETAILS IS YOUR ASSURANCE OF ENERGY CODE COMPLIANCE.
2015 IECC Chapter 4 [RE] RESIDENTIAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY
- General Building Thermal Envelope
- Simulated Performance Alternative
- Energy Rating Index Compliance Alternative
- Building Thermal Envelope (How to build it tight): o Where are the air leaks and ways to prevent them.
Duct Sealing and Testing:
- Problems caused by leaky ducts and how to fix them
- Good practices to follow
- Bad practices to avoid
- How to determine if you pass or fail
- How to select a third-party to verify energy code compliance.
Trainees will receive electronic, pdf files, containing energy code summary as well as other reference materials.
