Section 9.36 of the National Building Code requires stricter construction practices of new homes to ensure higher energy efficiency levels are met. The energy efficiency provisions deal with the construction of the building envelope, the sizing and selecting of HVAC and water heating equipment and energy performance simulation for housing. The code applies to all residential new construction and major renovations and additions. This course will provide an overview of the three compliance paths to achieve the energy efficiency requirements. Knowledge of HOT2000 energy modelling software is required to attend this class.
