    The Energy Efficiency Challenge: Understanding New Codes and Standards (UPDATED)

    The current U.S. energy consumption is not sustainable and the impact of our energy consumption is driving unprecedented changes in housing design and construction methods to reduce home energy use, create greater efficiencies, improve comfort and reduce monthly expenses for the homeowner. This course will take a closer look at residential energy use and how the changes in building codes and standards are driving improved energy performance in homes. We will take a look at new design and construction methods, materials, and systems that can be used to help reduce the energy requirements of homes and make them more efficient. Enroll

    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.
