Residential Webinar – Efficient, Effective, and Code Compliant HVAC and DHW
Mechanical systems and service water heating systems are key elements to energy performance of residential buildings. At the same time, code provisions related to these systems are among those with least code compliance. This course covers code provisions with the highest energy impacts and suggestions for verifying compliance during plan reviews and inspections. Topics will include mechanical system sizing, mechanical piping insulation, controls such as programmable thermostats, heat pump supplementary heat and hot water boiler outdoor temperature setback; circulation systems and demand recirculation systems for hot water, insulation around piping in different scenarios, drain water heat recovery, and heated swimming pools.
