Propane as a Solution to Meeting Code and Above-Code Programs â€“ Using High Efficiency Propane Systems as a Compliance Strategy
Nothing is driving greater change in the home building industry than energy efficiency, but prior to 2015 the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) didnâ€™t address mechanical equipment such as furnaces and water heaters. The 2015 IECC now includes a new compliance path called the Energy Rating Index allowing builders more choices in how to meet the energy code. This course will take a closer look at how high efficiency propane equipment such as furnaces and water heaters provide flexibility in meeting 2015 IECC standards and help reduce a homeâ€™s HERS Index, in addition to helping projects gain points in above-code programs such as LEED and the National Green Building Standard.
Water heaters are often the second largest energy user in the home, costing residents hundreds of dollars each year. Beginning in April 2015, the updated â€śNAECAâ€ť standards from the U.S. Department of Energy increased water heater efficiency requirements, driving major product changes in the U.S. market. â€śNAECAâ€ť stands for the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act and includes the federal regulations for water heater minimum efficiency levels. The course reviews the new federal standards for water heaters, and describes the market implications for both new construction and replacements.
