    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.

    Innovations in HVAC Design (Print Version)

    Increasing energy costs, pressure on energy resources, tightening energy efficiency regulations, and demand for high-performance buildings are driving the market for higher efficiency heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for commercial buildings. HVAC systems are the main energy consumers in commercial buildings, accounting for approximately 44% of all commercial buildings’ energy consumption. Improved component technologies, advanced control methods, and networked-based tools are leading to a paradigm shift in the way commercial HVAC systems are designed, operated, and managed. This article will take a look at the different innovations and solutions available today. Enroll
