WEBINAR: Zero Energy Homes Designing HVAC for Large Spaces with Low Loads
Thu October 6 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by CLEAResult
Course description: Few building professionals seem not to fully grasp the relationship between health, ventilation, and humidity. When designing a HVAC system for high preforming tightly built homes, ventilation and humidity have a big impact on occupant wellbeing. A good system will more than pay for itself in reduced heating and cooling costs and designers have a responsibility to help ascertain healthy and safe environments.
This course focuses on the HVAC and ventilation provisions of the current International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and Rhode Island amendments including correct sizing and design of HVAC systems, and ventilation strategies that ensure enhanced indoor air quality.
- The “house as a system approach” to achieve optimum design for a low load home and will cover the importance of equipment selection and design considerations.
- Proper sizing and system design. duct leakage (testing & requirements).
- Ventilation strategies (ERV) for optimal indoor air quality.
- The importance of contractor training and tenant/homeowner education for achieving a comfortable home that will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer
