Did you know Wisconsin recently joined Illinois and Michigan as states in the Midwest to implement the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) 2015 version? This brings many changes and additions to the previous energy code such as equipment efficiency ratings, economizer rules and compression staging. This webinar will address aspects of the IECC 2015 that apply to HVAC systems and summarize many of those key changes for commercial buildings. Join us to gain a better understanding of HVAC systems and their compliance requirements and how these “new” requirements can be beneficial to the building owner.
Who should watch?
Facility managers, HVAC and energy engineers, HVAC contractors, energy project managers, building contractors, sales engineers and anyone interested in HVAC systems.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
List what type of projects IECC 2015 applies to
Restate the compliance paths allowed by IECC 2015
Define key requirements for all heating and cooling systems including RTUs, boilers, and chillers
Explain to building owners how various code requirements save energy and are beneficial to their bottom line
Energy code overview
Difference between codes and DOE rules
Commercial HVAC provisions
Loads, sizing, and weather
Economizer rules... and there are a ton of them!
Fan speed control
Energy recovery ventilation
VAV system optimization
Duct sealing and insulation
Additional efficiency packages required by code
New DOE rules in addition to the IECC
