This two-day program is a comprehensive review of the residential portion of Chapters 1-4 of the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code. It includes examples, exercises and case studies designed to illustrate daily practices performed by a Residential Energy Inspector or Plans Examiner. Material includes a review of how the UCC amends certain provisions of the IRC, especially with regard to residential alterations and exclusions.
Background information on building products and systems used to achieve energy conservation is introduced as well as the basic principles of the “house as a system” approach. Building permit issuance is discussed with an emphasis placed on the most important issues to be addressed and resolved during the review process.
Interactive learning will be implemented through conducting a virtual inspection complete with house plans. Students will evaluate the building plans for content, determine what is lacking and then use the plans to conduct a mock onsite building inspection. A checklist of critical issues associated with energy conservation inspections will also be developed.
