This full day, three-part course is ideal for anyone new to the industry and reviews Building Science principles as they relate to the Performance Path option in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The course will introduce RESNET and the HERS Index, and relate the principles of building science as they apply to HERS. Explore the ERI/HERS Index as a tool to

successfully design and build houses that comply using the Performance Path option, while meeting the minimum prescriptive code requirements of the 2015 IECC.

Participants will learn about the guiding principles used by HERS Raters to rate a home to produce a HERS Index Score, and will spend the last part of the session reviewing energy rating software and manipulating construction assemblies to see the effect of energy scores.
