IECC 2015-Wisconsin’s new energy code for HVAC systems

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.
