Commissioning High Efficiency and Net Zero Energy Homes Workshop

This 3-hour course will provide an in-depth review on what needs to be and what can be commissioned in a residential home. Instructor Emmett Leffel will begin with discussing each system that is required to be commissioned based on minimum energy code requirements. Systems that will be covered are domestic hot water, heating systems, ventilation systems, and the air barrier systems.  The next part of the class will focus on advanced levels of commissioning based on higher level energy efficient standards where system performance is critical. Finally, the instructor will talk about more complex strategies that will focus on available technology such as thermal imaging, building diagnostics, and testing and balancing along with methods of measuring performance such as monitoring of indoor air quality and electrical usage monitoring to identify specific conditions and issues affecting performance, comfort and the health of a home. The instructor’s resources will be pulled from multiple auditing disciplines from his years as a BEES Energy Rater, LEED Green Rater, Air Barrier Auditor and BPI Building Analyst in the State of Alaska and encourage audience members to ask questions and share examples.
