Compliance Path Overview - Module 2: Window and Insulation Tables (Climate Zones 1 and 2)

Webinar Compliance Path Overview - Module 2: Window and Insulation Tables (Climate Zones 1 and 2)

Thursday, December 9 | 2:00 PM Central
Joe Nebbia

This class will discuss code requirements found in the prescriptive window and insulation requirements and how these requirements have changed through various code editions (2009-2021). The audience will learn how to interpret the tables, understand different insulation types that comply and explore innovative examples. The class will discuss how the code tables are intended to control conductive heat flow, and will explain how the code treats concepts like "effective R-value" and U-value. The class will also discuss flexibility allowed through different compliance options within the prescriptive compliance path. This module will cover IECC Climate Zones 1 and 2 while other modules will cover other climate zones.


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
