    Propane as a Solution to Meeting Code and Above-Code Programs – Using High Efficiency Propane Systems as a Compliance Strategy

    Nothing is driving greater change in the home building industry than energy efficiency, but prior to 2015 the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) didn't address mechanical equipment such as furnaces and water heaters. The 2015 IECC now includes a new compliance path called the Energy Rating Index allowing builders more choices in how to meet the energy code.

    In addition, builders can determine how to use propane to their maximum advantage under the ERI pathway by determining their homes’ Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index. The HERS Index predicts the energy performance of a home versus a "typical new home" benchmarked at a score of 100.

    This course will take a closer look at how high efficiency propane equipment such as furnaces and water heaters provide flexibility in meeting 2015 IECC standards and help reduce a home’s HERS Index, in addition to helping projects gain points in above-code programs such as LEED and the National Green Building Standard.

    Demystifying LEED v4 Envelope Commissioning

    The inclusion of Building Envelope Commissioning (BECx) in the Enhanced Commissioning credit of LEED v4 has provoked serious discussion regarding delivery of high performance enclosures. With pressure for proven energy efficiency measure after occupancy rather than based on predictions, the design and construction of the enclosure faces increasingly stringent demands. Design teams are employing BECx activities from early design phase performance modeling to construction phase enclosure testing. BECx has been introduced in LEEDv4 to ensure that actual energy usage matches predicted usage, to optimize the performance of the enclosure, to ensure that the envelope is coordinated with other systems, and to increase the overall energy efficiency of the building. This presentation will clarify the intent of ASHRAE 0-2005 and NIBS Guideline 3, inform participants of the activities described in the guidelines and most importantly, illustrate how BECx helps to deliver a better building.
