This course will provide a review of IECC Chapter 5 [RE] provisions with an emphasis on situations where work performed on existing buildings requires them to meet the energy code like new construction. This includes additions, new thermal envelope assemblies built as part of an alteration, window replacements, new heating, cooling and duct systems, new service hot water systems, new lighting where 50 percent or more of the luminaires are replaced, changes from unconditioned to conditioned space, and commercial spaces converted to dwelling units. The course will provide numerous examples and ask attendees to identify the energy code requirements for each scenario.
-Determine when construction in existing buildings needs to meet the energy code like new construction
-Determine situations where exceptions apply
-Utilize REScheck to document, determine, and document exceptions
-Understand various prescriptive energy code requirements for existing building projects requiring compliance, like new construction
