WEBINAR: Zero Energy Homes: Mini Split Heat Pump Duct Design – Warwick RI Case Study

Thu December 1, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

1 LU | HSW

Presented by CLEAResult

Registration required

Course description:  In 2015 the Governor signed an Executive order to Lead by Example! Stating by doing so we will “improve public health, protect the environment, and enhance quality of life”.

A new community of energy efficient homes being built to DOE’s Zero Energy Ready standards is currently under construction in Warwick RI. – We will present on the construction techniques health, energy, and environmental benefits.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to design and build a high-quality, cost-effective building shell for comfort, durability, and energy savings. Learn about: What goes on inside the walls of a well-insulated home, techniques for effective insulation and air barriers, and how to incorporate appropriate heating and cooling equipment.
  • Seminar Topics: Participants will be able to: Identify what goes into making a home “low load”, Understand why to build a home this way, understand basic HVAC system sizing and duct design for low load homes and identify the difference between planned and installed systems and reasoning behind the changes.
  • Building Science – The fundamental principles of energy and moisture transfer, and how homes are designed and built to control them. Zero Energy Ready Homes – Basic design considerations required to achieve low energy use homes. We will talk about construction techniques that are critical to achieve high-performance buildings and provide an understanding of the certification process and the role of consultants, standards, and verification.
  • How these homes will meet the requirements of DOE Zero Energy Ready and the RI Residential Stretch Code.
