CEU’s – 2 CSL Credits

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Residential renovations, alterations, repairs, and additions make up the largest proportion of building permit applications; yet, confusion abounds as to how the energy code applies such as when duct testing is required, how should ducts be insulated, and blower door testing requirement for additions. This course will cover several of the most common types of existing home projects and describe the applicability of the most important energy code provisions.

ChecklistThe installation of a continuous air and thermal barrier is perhaps the best and most cost-effective way to reduce energy waste and save money on utility bills; at the same time, important details are often missed. This course will be framed around the 2018 IECC Air Barrier and Insulation Installation criteria found in Table 402.4.1.1 with photos and graphics to illustrate non-compliant and compliant installation of critical details like attic penetrations, wall-to-ceiling transitions, rim joists, garage walls, knee walls, and tubs and showers on exterior walls. Installing and inspecting insulation to meet code and manufacturer requirements will also be discussed.
