    A Comparative Analysis of Residential Heating Systems

    In colder climates, space heating represents almost half of the annual energy costs for a residence, so selecting the right heating system for new construction or retrofits is an important decision. Today, that decision is more complex than ever with a wide range of systems on the market and new factors, such as carbon emissions, playing a growing role. To help you choose the right heating systems for your residential projects, this course presents highlights and conclusions of a 2013 research study performed to identify the best options based on several key variables.

    Choosing to Live Off-Grid: Energy Generation and Fuel Choices

    Living off the grid has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Energy independence, pursuit of a more sustainable life style, moving away from the city and economics are all cited as common reasons for choosing to live off grid. Off-grid and standby generators can be used in combination with renewable energy sources for successful off-grid living. This program compares and contrasts types of generators, and fuel choices for off-grid living. Enroll

    Analysis of Residential Energy Efficiency Upgrades

    The energy use of a home varies widely depending on a number of factors, including the climate, number of occupants, resident behavior, and mechanical systems. Because there are so many contributing factors, decisions on where and when to invest in energy-efficient equipment can be tricky for a homeowner, especially when it comes to paying a premium for higher efficiency equipment. In this course, which focuses on the typical energy use for average, single-family detached households, learn more about what factors to take into account when considering an upgrade of a home’s energy system or appliances.

    Residential Water Heaters under the New 2015 Federal Standards

    Water heaters are often the second largest energy user in the home, costing residents hundreds of dollars each year. Beginning in April 2015, the updated “NAECA” standards from the U.S. Department of Energy increased water heater efficiency requirements, driving major product changes in the U.S. market. “NAECA” stands for the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act and includes the federal regulations for water heater minimum efficiency levels.

    Against this backdrop of new standards, products, and decision-making factors, this course will review a detailed analysis of water heating systems. This analysis compares water heating technologies based on their energy, economic, and environmental performance, with a focus on the performance of propane-based systems relative to electric and heating oil alternatives. The course also reviews the new federal standards for water heaters, and describes the market implications for both new construction and replacements.
