Webinar Energy Code - Module 8: Performance path options (R405 and R406), and additional efficiency path options

Tuesday, January 25 | 2:00 PM Central
Joe Nebbia

This class will explain how to use the various performance path options in the IECC (Section R405 and R406) – their structure, the flexibility allowed in each, and the limitations of each. The audience will explore various scenarios for which compliance path will best suit certain construction choices. Finally, the class will explain the new required additional efficiency packages in R408 in the 2021 IECC.

Energy Code - Module 7: Ducts, HVAC, Hot Water, and Lighting

Webinar Energy Code - Module 7: Ducts, HVAC, Hot Water, and Lighting

Tuesday, January 18 | 2:00 PM Central
Joe Nebbia

This class now avaiable on demand, explains mandatory and prescriptive requirements related to duct installation, insulation, sealing, and testing, as well as requirements for heating, cooling, and hot water systems and controls. The class discusses mandatory requirements for mechanical ventilation and the building science rationale for these requirements. Attendees learn about code lighting requirements. An emphasis is placed on explaining how these code requirements have changed through various editions of the IECC, and finally what the 2021 IECC requires.

Webinar Energy Code - Module 6: Air Sealing Requirements

Friday, January 14 | 1:00 PM Central
Joe Nebbia

This class will discuss the air sealing requirements of the IECC, all of which are mandatory, as well as some new flexibility added in the 2021 IECC. The audience will learn what air sealing details are needed for compliance with the visual inspection tables, as well as air-tightness testing requirements in the code. The class will focus on successful strategies for meeting code air sealing targets.

Webinar Energy Code - Module 4: Window & Insulation Tables (Climate Zones 6, 7 & 8)

Wednesday, December 15 | 2:30 PM Central
Joe Nebbia

This class will discuss code requirements found in the prescriptive window and insulation requirements and how these requirements have changed through various code editions (2009-2021). The audience will learn how to interpret the tables, understand different insulation types that comply and explore innovative examples. The class will discuss how the code tables are intended to control conductive heat flow, and will explain how the code treats concepts like "effective R-value" and U-value. The class will also discuss flexibility allowed through different compliance options within the prescriptive compliance path. This module will cover IECC Climate Zones 6, 7, and 8 while previous modules covered other climate zones.
Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize Minimum Code Requirements
  • Describe the energy code compliance path options and required information/documentation for typical permit applications, compliance information on construction documents, and completion documents/certifications
  • Recognize a variety of energy code compliance options related to common decision points in construction
