Energy Code - Module 8: Performance path options (R405 and R406), and additional efficiency path options
This class will explain how to use the various performance path options in the IECC (Section R405 and R406) – their structure, the flexibility allowed in each, and the limitations of each. The audience will explore various scenarios for which compliance path will best suit certain construction choices. Finally, the class will explain the new required additional efficiency packages in R408 in the 2021 IECC.
Learning Objectives:
• Summarize Minimum Code Requirements
• Describe the energy code compliance path options and required information/documentation for typical permit applications, compliance information on construction documents, and completion documents/certifications
• Recognize a variety of energy code compliance options related to common decision points in construction
• Identify specific areas identified in the code for inspection of insulation and air sealing
• Describe a plan for compliance given several unique compliance scenarios
• Identify common areas of risk
• Explain how code and building science best practice address these areas of risk
